Gov. Brown To Meet With Emergency Response Officials

Gov. Jerry Brown plans to meet with emergency response officials Monday at the State Operations Center in Mather regarding the ongoing response to the situation at the Oroville Dam's emergency spillway. 

On Sunday, Brown declared a state of emergency to help mobilize disaster response resources and support the local evacuations.

The Governor's Office of Emergency Services has activated the State Operations Center in Mather, California to its highest level. It is also coordinating with personnel at the Incident Command Post in Oroville, and with other local, state and federal emergency response officials to address all emergency management, evacuation and mutual aid needs.

There are no announced plans by Gov. Brown to visit Lake Oroville in the coming days. His spokeswoman says the governor's main focus is on the response.

Meanwhile, Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and emergency operations officials met with residents at an evacuation center in Woodland today.
