rising reservoirs causing some spectacular scenes around
10:29 pm
the bay area... tonight -- water managers around the state are doing what they can ... to keep things under control. it's hard to believe we were in a drought not too long ago. kron4's spencer blake checked out anderson lake today -- where an enormous amount of water is being released. that powerful the roar of massive amounts of water.flowing from this relatively small pipe áevery secondá."it's unbelievable. a lot of water. lot of water coming out of there.""boy, this last storm put a lot of water in the reservoir."right now the anderson reservoir is at 93 percent capacity - well over regulators' safety limit of 68 percent.there are seismic concerns on the 60-year-old dam that mean the water district is trying to get as much water out as it physically can."while it's pretty impressive to see 416 cubic feet of water per second pass through this outflow, remember the inflows into the
10:30 pm
reservoir are two thousand feet per second." "that's why the water level is continuing to rise."when next week's storm rolls around, the water district thinks the lake will fill to capacity."i love it. i can't wait until it comes over the spillway. it's gorgeous." from the top of the dam, you can see how close the water level is getting to the spillway.though there aren't real flood concerns here now, they could be coming."when and if the water goes over the spillway, we can't control the amount of water that's flowing over, so that's where you see flooding concerns."even still, the water district spokesman marty grimes isn't anticipating major issues.some other reservoirs in the valley, like uvas, are already spilling over.these drought- stricken southern california tourists couldn't believe their eyes at anderson lake. "it looks like a lot of wasted water going down the creek, but obviously there's a purpose as to why they're releasing the water."as for those seismic concerns, remember - it would take a ámassive earthquake, on one specific fault line, during the time the reservoir is cause a water catastrophe.grimes says that is highly morgan hill, spencer blake, kron four news.
10:31 pm
the rains stopped just in time to avert a crisis at that crumbling spillway at lake oroville. state water officials say they won't have to use an emergency spillway .... a move that could have had catastrophic consequences downstream. water will continue to pour down the concrete spillway.the bottom half is almost completely eroded can see the water turning brown as it flows out of the breach and onto the surrounding hillside. with the water in lake oroville just five feet from the top of the dam, officials had been predicting they'd have to use an emergency spillway to the's how it looks on google earth. it would spill water onto open land, potentially sending a tidal wave of trees and debris into the feather river below. today, they said that won't be necessary.lake oroville is one state's the biggest reservoirs. it's currently at 96 percent of capacity ... nearly 150 percent of its historical average at this time of year. shasta, the biggest in the state, is at 92 percent of
10:32 pm
capacity, also well above average.smaller trinity lake nearby, is two=thirds full, about average.east of sacramento, folsom lake is three quarters full, 141 percent of normal.and new melones lake, a vital water source for central valley farmers, is just half full, still below average, the storms are filling up average, the storms are filling up the reservoirs with rain ... but another factor is the unseasonably warm weather that is melting the snow pack... the source of a lot of the state's water in the summer months. a train derailment in sacramento today... take a look at this video. more than a dozen of cars from a freight train... slipped off the tracks and ended up submerged in the consumnes

chancellor and other officials. devos got back in her car as one man shouted "shame." she was able to get into the building through another entrance. some of the demonstrators were members of the washington teachers union. the president of the union publicized the education secretary's visit on twitter - she called on protesters to say "no" to privatization of schools. there is a new grassroots movement taking shape -- it is called "indivisible". it's targetting g-o-p lawmakers... with rallies - phone calls -- and now rowdy town halls. reporter kyung lah shows us the impact it's having. natsthe town hall welcome for congressman jason chaffetz.nats jeered...natsdrowned out... rep. jason chaffetz/ utah:"i'm trying to be as representative as i can."natsa crowd of one thousand... viscerally tired of d-c blather...natsanother one thousand people, say police... outside.nats congressman chaffetz... seeing firsthand the national tide of
