Evacuation over but evacuation warning still in place as more storms arrive at Oroville Dam « Hot Air

If the projections for coming storms turn out to be accurate then the water of the lake behind the dam should continue to fall, meaning will remain dozens of feet below the level of the emergency spillway. The concern is that the storms could dump more water than anticipated. After five years of severe drought, California is having a record wet season which has ended the drought conditions in the northern half of the state and significantly reduced them in the southern half.


And as we know, projections of storms are almost always correct.

If one were to use "anticipated" with any precision, ..... oh I give up. It will never again be used as anything other than a pretentious way of saying "expected".
