They have an evacuation order for two cities and 100,000 people. Reasonably serious I would say.

Watched a doco on this the other day..

Happened back in 1963 - killed 2000 people. They calculated there would be a 20m wave - turned out to be 200m high instead - someone cocked up by a factor of 10. Let's hope modern computers can help this one not to F-up.

Yeah I watched that too. Was interesting except it went twice as long as it needed to with all the dramatic recreations.

At 700 feet high the wall is the highest in usa.
that makes the spillway massive.
the engineering works that are and will be used are interesting.
