Golden Globes 2018: Complete list of nominees

The rain has started to return in Northern California and will continue over the next few days, but officials aren't as concerned about the upcoming weather so much as the damage already done to the Oroville Dam's already compromised main spillway.

Lake Oroville is about 75 miles north of Sacramento and about 25 miles southeast of Chico. The dam is the tallest in the United States. Its emergency spillway is damaged, and the lake is at capacity.
