Emergency workers are trying to seal a crumbling spillway on a California dam to prevent flooding of local communities. Close to 200,000 residents were ordered to evacuate from the area below the Lake Oroville Dam, after it was determined that the spillway that diverts the water overflow from the dam, might give way. Zlatica Hoke reports.
