(spencer)this time, nobody got hurt, and law enforcement didn't have to use their tactical methods...because they noticed some clues early on...that pointed to the whole thing being a fake. there's nothing terribly loud or busy about grove way in castro valley.but thursday night, one neighbor wondered just áwhat was happening. "helicopter flying behind my house and then i seen a bunch of sheriff's and chp coming down grove at about 50 miles an hour with their lights on."
alameda county sheriff's deputies were responding to a 9-1-1 caller who said he was holding three hostages on this very street.he claimed he had an assault rifle inthe home, and demanded a ransom of 15- thousand dollars from arriving paramedics.but deputies had been at this particular address before, and had heard similar threats and demands within the last year.that's how they knew it was a so- called 'swatting' call."it's kind of scary, to be honest. i mean, you never know what's going on in your neighborhood, and to just find that out through you, it's kind of scary."because of their observance, officers were able to deem the scene safe, and they didn't have to use any high-risk tactics."not to mention it wastes a bunch of money and manpower, i'm sure." that it does.the sheriff's office says this is a good opportunity for parents to talk with their kids about how dangerous and needless this type of prank can be...especially after a kansas man was accidentally killed by police in a separate swatting hoax just after christmas.a hercules family also had their home 'swatted' last week. fortunately they weren't hurt either."it does bring me comfort just to know that the sheriff's department is ahead of it so they can focus on real crime."often, swatting
victims are random targets...but in this case in castro valley, deputies figured out that the threat was meant for the person who áused to live at the home's address.

(jr stone) we are learning more information about the failure of the oroville dam spillway...the one that forced the evacuation of nearly 200- thousand people... now a new report says america's tallest dam was flawed from the moment is was built a half- century ago. a federal panel blames the near- catastrophe on faulty design, sloppy construction...and decades of second-rate repairs. julia avery has the details...
the report says that the department of water resources, or dwr, was quote "somewhat overconfident and complacent" and gave "inadequate priority for dam safety."the panel explains that problems started shortly after the dam opened in 1968.the chute cracked above and along under-drain pipes, leading to higher-than- expected flows of water directly beneath the chute.it reads: "the slab cracking and underdrain flows, although originally thought of as unusual, were quickly deemed to be 'normal,' and as simply requiring on-going repairs"but repeated repairs over the years were said to be ineffective and possibly detrimental."the chute then slowly deteriorated..it was revealed that the chute was built on "poor foundation conditions" beneath the concrete.this all came to a head as they were releasing the water on february 7th after a massive season of rain and the spillway started to erupt.as the hole was forming, dam operators decided to slow down water releases on the chute for the next few days in an effort to limit the damage and protect a nearby power plant.well, the rain didn't stop and water levels at lake oroville rose so high that water started pouring over the nearby emergency spillway for the first time ever.the forensic team said the dwr dam
operators didn't realize just how risky it was to let water pour over the emergency spillway.quote "the decisions were made with the best of intentions, but against the advice of civil engineering and geological personnel, who had by then recognized the poor bedrock conditions and the potential for unsatisfactory performance of the previously untested emergency spillway,"this report draws the curtain of that day...and the debate internally on how to handle the issues.once the emergency spillway was being used, there was worry that it wouldn't do it's job.that's when the entire city was evacuated.
