Oregonians and other westcoast residents, even Midwesterners are in near panic to buy iodide pills, Geiger counters and emergency kits. However, they soon find there's little to buy and are logging into Amazon to stock up, and finding many selections there are either out of stock or backordered. Alaska and the West Coast are closest to the site of the earthquake, but even people from Midwest states are preparing for winds to carry radiation from Japan. Potassium iodide tablets protect the thyroid gland from radioactive material by overloading it with nonradioactive iodine. Health experts say taking the tablets was not a good idea, that Potassium contained in the pills can lead to heart problems and giving an adult a dose of potassium iodide to an infant would be toxic. Physics professor Ken Barish at the University of California, Riverside says it's unlikely that the West Coast would be harmed by radioactivity drifting from Japan. In Redding, Calif., Whitney's Vitamin and Herb Shop is stocking up on potassium iodide tablets after the store said it was overwhelmed with calls this weekend from people seeking the anti-radiation medicine. Scientists Say Minimal Ris ...

CRESCENT CITY, Calif. – The tsunami warnings moved faster than the waves, giving millions of people across the Pacific hours to flee to higher ground. Now they are left to clean up what the waves had wrought: Destroyed docks and damaged boats. A deadly tsunami generated by an 8.9-magnitude earthquake in Japan raced across the Pacific on Friday and into marinas and harbors in Hawaii and on the West Coast, sending boats crashing into one another, carrying some out to sea and demolishing docks. The damage — the most severe in two seaside towns along the Oregon-California border — was estimated to be in the millions. "This is just devastating. I never thought I'd see this again," said Ted Scott, a retired mill worker who lived in Crescent City, Calif., when a 1964 tsunami killed 11 people, 17 total along the West Coast. Still, there was relief that the destruction in the U.S. was nothing like that in Japan. The offshore quake pushed water onto land, sometimes miles inland, sweeping away boats, cars, homes and people. Hundreds are dead. "With everything that could have happened and did happen in Japan, we're just thankful that nothing else happened," said Sabrina Skiles, ...

On Sunday afternoon, Washington County Sheriff's deputies responded to a crash on Highway 99W south of SW Bell Road (just south of the City of Sherwood). At about 3 p.m, a weather front was moving through the area that brought high winds and heavy rain. Deputies investigating the crash determined that cars in the north-bound lanes had slowed down for debris in the road. Witnesses told them that several large branches had been blown off the trees that border the roadway. As the traffic slowed, the driver of a '97 white Nissan Sentra slammed into the back of a 2000 Chevy Pickup truck. The impact caused major damage to the Nissan. Neither driver was injured in the crash. Both lanes of Highway 99W were blocked for a short period while the wreckage was cleared from the road.

As the possibility of a nuclear core meltdown in Japan turns from possible to what some are now calling "a probability", many people are beginning to panic, including Oregonians. Supermarkets, Pharmacies, and Drug Stores are reporting a huge rush of customers asking to buy iodine tablets in the form of Potassium Iodide as an anti-radiation cure. Safeway, Rite Aid, Fred Meyer, major drug stores, and pharmacies report an insurgent and perhaps an unnecessary demand for iodine. Westerly winds from Japan move over the pacific to Oregon. The fear of course is that a core meltdown will carry radioactive particles here Japan. In the case of a meltdown, we'd need to closely observe upper-level winds. The the jet-stream could move radiation to the West Coast in only a few days.

SEATTLE -- The owners of a dog electrocuted on a Seattle utility cover last year have filed a claim against the city for $60,000 in damages, blaming it for failing to ensure that the electrical system in the area was safe. Owners Lisa McKibbin and Nancy Bostdorff mailed their claim Friday. Their lawyer, Adam Karp, said their dog, Sammy, a 6-year-old German shorthaired pointer, was a beloved member of the family, whose painful death had caused them great distress. "My clients loved Sammy as if he were their child," Karp wrote in the claim. McKibbin had been walking the dog in Queen Anne last November, when he stepped on a metal sidewalk plate conducting 90 volts, convulsed, and died. The plate was part of a system of four decorative streetlamps improperly grounded by a private contractor. The bad installation - coupled with a pinched wire in a lamphead - had led to the shock hazard, the city discovered after the death. Full Story on Seattle PI. ...

NEWPORT, Oregon - The most powerful earthquake to hit Japan in at least 100 years unleashed walls of water today that swept across rice fields, engulfed towns, dragged houses onto highways, tossed cars and boats like toys, apparently killing hundreds and forcing the evacuations of tens of thousands, and is now on its way to the Oregon coast.

Geophysicist Gerard Fryer at the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center in Honolulu says high water reached Port Orford around 7:30 a.m. PST Friday. However, fears of six to ten foot waves did not occur. Instead, waves of less than two feet in most areas hit the Oregon coast.

Officials along the coast activated warning sirens hours earlier to alert people to leave low-lying areas.

People in coastal areas of Oregon, California and Washington evacuated ahead of the waves.

In Alaska, the tsunami caused a wave just over 5 feet at Shemya in the Aleutian Islands 1,200 miles southwest of Anchorage.

Emergency warnings and sirens in some areas of the Oregon coast were activated in an effort to urge people to seek higher ground as the tsunami crossed the Pacific. Emergen ...
