Default Out in California--Oroville Dam situation for Steamboatin' friends

HI all,
Well, it IS a river! We are fine, with our house 300 feet above and behind the dam. Right now things are looking better, although still not "stable" and rain is due in this week. Jean & Meredith Hathaway's home is above any flood area (well, unless the main dam gave way, and it's not in any danger at present) but they may have had to evacuate just because of their zip code. Dorothy & Lou Kissel's home is also above the dam, though not by much--they can see the dam from their backyard, I think--probably a football field away! I don't know any other Steamboatin' friends in the nearby area, although there are likely a few!
