Pinned Driver Rescued from Surging Surf on Oregon Coast

PACIFIC CITY, Ore. – Nestucca Fire’s Chief of Training Brian Jones tells KXL they rescued a driver pinned in a tipped-over SUV on the Oregon Coast on Tuesday, “we’re not 100% sure…what caused the vehicle flip, but while making a turn, (a) wave broadsided their vehicle .”

The SUV initially had 3 people in it. Two of the three were able to escape through the moon roof. One came back in and held the trapped driver’s head above water while the tide rushed in, “We used some of our specialized tools to cut the roof to get the patient free.”

Jones says

Bad news for super blood wolf moon fans in Oregon: It’s going to be cloudy Sunday night

There are a lot of great things about living in Oregon. Sky-gazing in the middle of January is not one of them.

As the rest of the world prepares for what’s been dubbed the “super blood wolf moon,” designated as such due to its intense red coloration and because it comes at a time when wolves would howl at night out of hunger, Oregonians will instead stare up at the sky to be greeted by — what else? — clouds.

According to the National Weather Service, folks can anticipate overcast conditions across the

Shutdown: February food stamps come early as March benefits remain in limbo

More than 600,000 Oregonians who rely on the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s food stamps program received their February benefits early this week. Meanwhile, allocations for March remain in limbo as negotiations in Washington, D.C., continue to end a partial shutdown of the federal government, which enters its fifth week Sunday.

Photographer nearly swept out to sea at Thor’s Well on Oregon Coast

YACHATS, Ore. — A photographer from McMinnville captured a risky situation Sunday, as he watched another man take photos along the Oregon Coast.

Photographer Scott Gibson said he saw a man nearly get knocked off a rock and into the water as he tried to take photos of Thor’s Well, located south of Yachats.

Gibson discovered the spot in 2007 and named it Thor’s Well because he thought it looked mythological.

“I named it Thor’s Well and it caught on and now it’s become a fairly popular place on the Oregon coast for photographers,” Gibson
