A High Surf Advisory issued by the National Weather Service for the Central Coast is in effect until 3:00pm this afternoon. Breaking waves will continue to run-up beaches much higher than normal. Waves will likely break over jetties much closer to shore than usual. Large driftwood logs can easily be carried by the high surf. Injuries or death are possible to those near or on the logs. Large ocean swells around 21 to 23 feet will continue, subsiding below 20 feet this afternoon. The threat of coastal flooding and significant beach erosion has ended.

A High Surf Advisory means that high surf will affect beaches in the advisory area, producing rip currents and localized beach erosion. It can be very dangerous to venture near the coast under high surf conditions. People at times are swept off rocks and jetties and drown while observing high surf. Stay well back from the water’s edge and be alert for the exceptionally high waves.

A High Wind Watch has been issued by the National Weather Service for Central Coast beaches and headlands, in effect from Saturday evening through Sunday morning. South winds 30-40 mph with gusts 55-65 mph. Strongest winds are expected early Sunday morning. Strong winds may blow down trees, branches, and power lines. Isolated power outages are possible.

A High Wind Watch means hazardous high wind conditions are favorable in and close to the watch area in the next 12 to 48 hours.

Forecast: So, it looks like we’ll be trading-in high surf for high winds. Showers continue today through tomorrow, producing up to another inch and a half inch of rain, sou’westers gusting 20-25 mph, high temps in the upper-40s and a low in the low-40s. Outlook is for rainy and windy Sunday, showers Monday, rain again Tuesday, then showers Wednesday and Thursday. The mercury should be near average with highs of 45-50F and lows of 40-45F during the extended period.

Stanley Green
Columbia Bank robbery (among others) suspect booked in to Lincoln Co. Jail

Last week, Lincoln County Sheriff’s Deputies received information from detectives with the Brookings Police Department and the US Marshals Service that Stanley Carl Green, 55 years of age, was spotted in the area of Brookings. The US Marshals and the Brookings Police Department were seeking Green regarding an active warrant for his arrest on the charge of Failing to Appear regarding a robbery charge out of Tacoma, Washington.

A little later, Bandon Police learned that Green was staying at a campsite at Bullards State Park in Bandon. Officers notified law enforcement agencies including the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office and they all responded to the scene.

Coos County’s Emergency Response Team (SWAT) went to Bullards State Park and quickly had Green in handcuffs.

At the Coos County Jail, Lincoln County and Port Orford authorities questioned Green and he admitted to his involvement in both the Columbia Bank robbery in Waldport and the Rogue Credit Union robbery in Port Orford.

Back at Green’s camp site authorities located items connected to both bank robberies and those items were seized. Green was immediately loaded in to a vehicle and transported to the Lincoln County Jail in Newport and booked on charges of Robbery, Illegal Use of a Weapon, Theft, Reckless Endangering, Menacing, Coercion and being a Fugitive from another state. Bail: $1.5 Million.

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office expresses their thanks to the multiple agencies involved in the apprehension of Green. They say the arrest was successful due to multi-agency collaboration including the Coos County Sheriff’s Office, Bandon Police Department, Brookings Police Department, Oregon State Police, the U.S. Marshals Service and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Green is expected to appear in Lincoln County Circuit Court for his first appearance on January 25th at 4:30pm.

Samaritan Hospice hosts quarterly video class on end-of-life care, care for the caregiver

Samaritan Hospice hosts quarterly video class on end-of-life care, care for the caregiver

Caring for someone who is nearing the end of life is not the same as caring for someone who will get better. To help clinical staff, family caregivers and others to understand the process, Samaritan Hospice Services is hosting an informative session four times this year beginning in February.

At each session, participants will watch two videos that were created by Barbara Karnes, RN, a nationally known hospice care author and educator. One is “New Rules for End of Life Care” and the other is “Care for the Caregiver.” The videos will be followed by a question and answer forum led by Samaritan’s hospice professionals. Each session will be held from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 8, May 3, Aug. 2 and Nov. 1 at Samaritan North Lincoln Hospital in Lincoln City; and on Feb. 21, May 2, Aug. 1 and Nov. 7 at the Center for Health Education in Newport.

The DVDs are filled with ideas and guidance for the nurse, social worker, nurse’s aide, chaplain, physician, end of life Doula, who compassionately guides those with the terminally ill through the final moments of life with emotional and spiritual support, especially for care-givers. Anyone who is immersed in the responsibilities of supporting, educating and guiding a person and their family through the dying experience can find insight into making their work more meaningful.

As a former hospice nurse, Karnes was at the bedside of hundreds of people during the dying process. She was driven to explore the dynamics of dying when she noticed that each death followed a near identical script, that each person went through the stages of death in almost the same manner and that most families had the same questions. These realizations led Karnes to write books, speak and teach on the topic of end-of-life care. She brought her message to Lincoln County last year and through the video class sessions will be able to shepherd the soon-to-be-departed and their family through a compassionate process of letting go with spiritual strength and love.

Coffee and water will be offered. Resource materials will be available for purchase at $2, cash only.

Surf warning upgraded – 50-60 foot waves possible

 Daily News  Comments Off on Surf warning upgraded – 50-60 foot waves possible
Jan 182018

The Coastal Flood Warning issued by the National Weather Service for the Central Coast, in effect until midnight tonight, has been updated. Even higher surf is possible than originally predicted. Ocean water will rush much farther up beaches and jetties than normal. Structures and roads located immediately at beach level will be inundated by waves and damaged by debris. Many beaches, jetties, and rocky outcroppings will be covered by deep water. Several state parks have been closed as of this afternoon. Large logs can be pushed farther up beaches, resulting in damage to structures and posing a significant risk to beach-goers. Beach erosion is possible.

Offshore buoys reported significant ocean swell heights up to 36 feet this morning with a dominant wave period of 17 seconds. Significant wave heights early this afternoon were still near 30 feet. The swell will slowly subside late this afternoon through tonight, but remain above 25 feet through late evening. The swell will produce 35 to 45 foot breaking waves along the beaches through this evening. Highest potential wave heights through this evening could reach 50 to 60 feet.

The extremely large surf combined with a higher than normal tide this afternoon will likely result in flooding of low-lying areas along the coast. Locations particularly vulnerable are the Willapa Bay and vicinity, Seaside, Nehalem, Tillamook and Florence. Early this afternoon tidal flooding was noted in Nehalem.

A Coastal Flood Warning means that flooding is occurring or imminent. Coastal residents in the warned area should be alert for rising water, and take appropriate action to protect life and property. Visitors should remain off beaches and avoid narrow access areas where escape routes could be cut off by rising water. Exercise extreme caution along and near beaches.
