Oregon Is About to Get a Lot More Hazardous

The 36-foot tribal canoe listed to the left as it pushed away from the dock, looking dangerously close to spilling into the still green waters of Lake River.

A soft breeze picked up and light rain began to fall, dulling the reflection of the shoreline in this tributary of the Columbia River about 25 minutes north of Vancouver.

Tribal chairman Tony Johnson instructed everyone to raise their paddles – the crescent-shaped ends marking

Oregon Legislature repeals tsunami zone building law


Add survival pods to tsunami preparedness in the Pacific Northwest, which is threatened by the Cascadia subduction zone. Scientists say the fault produces a 9.0 magnitude earthquake every 200 to 500 years. The last one was more than 300 years ago. (May 5)

The Oregon Legislature has repealed a nearly 25-year-old law prohibiting new schools, hospitals, jails, and police and fire stations from being built in the state’s tsunami inundation zone.

Coastal legislators, who pushed the bill, say the risks of a natural disaster must be weighed

Heat wave roasts East Coast, Central U.S.

NEW YORK — Americans from Texas to Maine sweated out a steamy Saturday as a heat wave canceled events from festivals to horse races and pushed New York City to order power-saving steps to avoid overtaxing the electrical grid.

The National Weather Service said “a dangerous heat wave” was expected to break record highs in some places, particularly for nighttime. Daytime temperatures were poised to hit the mid- to upper 90s, with high humidity making it feel considerably hotter.

“It’s brutal,” Jeffrey Glickman said as he paused during a run Saturday morning in Washington.
