Our first major storm related event has just occurred on Highway 34 (Alsea Highway), 29 miles east of Waldport. Reports say that a very large landslide has fallen over the highway, completely blocking it.
HIGHWAY 34 IS COMPLETELY BLOCKED BY A LARGE LANDSLIDE AT MILEPOST 29.
Not only is travel on Highway 34 beyond milepost 29 blocked, but so is paramedic/ambulance services to areas on the other side. Emergency dispatchers are informing paramedic/ambulance services in Philomath/Corvallis that they may be getting some emergency call referrals for that area just cut off from the coast.
