Daily Overview
Water rushes down the main spillway of the Oroville Dam, located on the Feather River in northern California. At 770 feet high (235m), the dam is the tallest in the United States and serves mainly for water supply, hydroelectricity generation, and flood control. Amid heavy rainfall in February 2017, this spillway was significantly damaged and more than 180,000 people living downstream were evacuated.
