water level has dropped because of some of the emergency efforts they're making to get that water to go down stream. >> what's next for the people that had to evacuate? >> reporter: they have to just wait and see, because, you know, some of the officials today were saying just because it's clear skies and just because the imminent failure of this spillway and this dam hasn't happened, doesn't mean that it's perfectly safe. so until it's safe and until they can be sure that the spillways have been reinforced, they're not going to let anybody back home. that's a tough one. a lot of people had about an hour to get out last night when it looked like there was an imminent failure on their hands and they were just barely getting out with what they had on then, so it's been a difficult night for almost 200,000 people, difficult day and a few more ahead. >> all right. thanks for that.
