  • OROVILLE, Calif. (AP) — A California state senator is troubled that residents below a damaged California dam knew little about potential risk until ordered to evacuate when a spillway began breaking up.

    Republican Sen. Jim Nielsen says communication from state managers during the February crisis at Oroville Dam was confusing to the public.

    On Feb. 7, a massive crack opened in the main spillway at the dam. For days, managers assured the public there was no imminent danger as they slowed releases of water to assess the damage.
    Then, a backup spillway started falling apart, triggering the evacuation order for nearly 200,000 people.
    An Associated Press review found officials made a series of questionable decisions and missteps before and during the crisis.

    Nielsen represents thousands of residents who were evacuated and says the confusing communication in the days leading to the evacuation will be one issue discussed during a Senate hearing on the crisis this month.

    He says "there must be some accountability."



  • SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The U.S. Air Force says pilot error forced two airmen to eject from a U2 spy plane while on a training mission from Beale Air Force Base base in September, killing one of them.
    The Air Force released findings of its probe of the crash near Sutter, California on Wednesday. Investigators found that a pilot who was learning to fly the aircraft either pulled back too fast or too quickly on his stick while learning to recover from a stall. That caused the plane to go into a secondary stall that forced him and his instructor, Lt. Col. Ira S. Eadie, to eject.
    Investigators determined Eadie suffered fatal injuries when his seat struck the plane's right wing.
