For all her work, a benefit walk at the Port of Brookings Harbor last Saturday garnered her $18.

“The rain just ruined it for us,” she said.

With a government shutdown now a reality, the impact here in Curry County looks to be minimal in the short term, but could impact locally the longer it lasts.

The Port of Port Orford will be dredged after the state reached an agreement with the Army Corps of Engineers, bringing relief to the local fishing fleet and community already struggling economically to stay afloat.

After dropping almost 3 inches of rain, the gusty wet weekend storm has moved on, leaving the Wild Rivers Coast with a forecast for good weather heading into next weekend.

The storm reached its peak on Sunday, with 2.12 inches of rain and gusty winds all day, according to the downtown weather station at the Curry Coastal Pilot office. The peak gust was 38 miles per hour Saturday evening, with another gust of 32 mph Sunday afternoon. Total rainfall downtown was 2.85 inches over the three days.

An unflushable situation
September 27, 2013 07:23 pm

A unidentified clump of materials not meant to be flushed down toilets clogged a Brookings sewage pipe earlier this year.

If it didn’t come out of your body, it doesn’t belong in the potty.

“Water, bodily fluids and toilet paper — period,” said Brookings wastewater treatment plant manager Ray Page. “I’ve seen stuff that made me go, ‘eww,’ and I’ve been doing this for quite awhile.”a
