Drone Shows 'Glory Hole' Spillway at Lake Berryessa Overflowing

The Morning Glory Spillway, called the “Glory Hole” by locals, spilled over for the first time in 10 years this week. The overflow is a result of a month of recent rains filling the river in formerly drought-stricken California.

Drone operator Evan Kilkus told Storyful that the latest rains in California are topping the lake off at over 3.5 feet above the World Famous Glory Hole Spillway at Lake Berryessa. His latest drone video shows Lake Berryessa, Putah Creek, and the Monticello Dam. Credit: Evan Kilkus via Storyful
