Description

An immediate evacuation has been ordered for tens of thousands of people living in the US city of Sacramento.

The Oroville Dam's auxiliary spillway has failed, forcing the evacuations of several counties in California.

The emergency spillway was activated as water levels from heavy rains caused the reservoir to rise above its capacity.
