Fires may impact regional travel
September 16, 2014 08:31 am

Fires in Southern Oregon and Northern California may impact travel in the region Tuesday.

Interstate 5 is closed this morning at Weed, Calif., where the Boles Fire forced the evacuation of several communities Monday.

"Be ready" evacuation warnings have been issued in areas east of Grant Pass near Highway 199 because of the Onion Mountain Fire. There are no current limits on traffic posted.

You can follow southern Oregon fire conditions at http://www.swofire.com and ODOT highway reports at http://www.tripcheck.com/Pages/RCMap.asp?curRegion=7

Drinking water update
September 15, 2014 10:01 am

As of today (Monday, Sept. 15), Brookings tap water remains safe to drink and will likely remain so, city officials said.

Meanwhile, tap water in Harbor still contains some ocean water and, while it does not pose a health hazard to most people, Harbor residents with sensitive stomachs or on low sodium diets are encouraged to drink bottled water or obtain water from an alternative source.

The salt water intrusion into Harbor’s water is likely to continue until significant rain increases the flow of the Chetco River and keeps the ocean tides at bay.
