Beale Air Force Base in northern California was sheltering several hundred evacuees from the Lake Oroville flood threat Monday, and the entire California National Guard has been put on alert as the military gears up for an emergency response.

The base opened its gates to evacuees from local communities Sunday night, and by Monday was caring for more than 400 people. “This was an immediate and emergency action to support a portion of the 180,000 evacuees of the Oroville Dam emergency situation,” the base said in a release.

“Team Beale understands the hardships many are enduring during this crisis, and we want to offer all of the aid we can,” it said in a Facebook post.
