Oroville Lake Water Elevation seen from Space

The Airbus SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 satellites witness the increased water level of the Oroville Reservoir

Toulouse, Feb 17, 2017 – Due to recent and heavy rainfall, the water level of Lake Oroville has drastically increased, reaching a dangerous peak which led to the evacuation of over 100,000 people as a precaution, in case there was a dam failure.


The Airbus SPOT 6 and SPOT 7 satellites constantly acquire imagery at 1.5m resolution on any point of the Earth, and are capturing this water level elevation in Oroville, California.
 
You can see here an image acquired by SPOT on February, 14th, 2017, and can compare it to a previous image, acquired by SPOT 6 on June, 27th 2016, where the lake banks are clearly visible.
