    Facebook has mobilized for this potential disaster. It is the most powerful media source out there.

  2. jeffpelline says:

    Still no change on the front door of TheUnion.com. This is inexcusable.

  3. jeffpelline says:

    Oh no, now The Union is reporting this breaking news event as “sponsored content”:
    “State orders evacuation of Oroville‚Äôs low levels, downstream areas
    SPONSORED”

    It is hopeless.

    The Union has now updated the front door of its website to include news of the evacuation. Good going. Better late than never.
