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 ...

Newberg residents have finally received the EPA report on PCB contamination caused by a Newberg PG&E substation fire and subsequent explosion on Howard Street around 6:30 AM Saturday, February 19, 2011. The report indicates only very low-levels of PCB contamination were present after the explosion, and that the oil from the blown circuit breaker was much more of an environmental concern. That Saturday afternoon, The Oregon Herald published a report on what happened. The debris from the fire and explosion rocked nearby homes for several blocks jarring most out of a deep sleep. The substation circuit breaker blew three gallons of boiling-hot oil far into the air, over surrounding trees, structures, brushes, Memorial Park a block away, and homes over a five-block diameter. The oil in the circuit breakers is known to contain 12 parts per million of PCBs. Click for larger vers ...

Newberg-Dundee Police Department representative Capt. Jeff Kosmicki said the incident occurred in Dundee near the 1100 block of Southeast Ash Street.

The woman and her son then fled on foot, ran to a nearby home on Ash Street, and pounded on the door where Erika Carlile lives with her mother Debi.

Vancouver - Clark County Public Health officials are investigating a second case of measles in a school-aged child. The child was exposed two weeks ago at the same medical facility that the first case visited following a trip to India. This second case, unrelated to the first case, was unvaccinated when exposed. Health officials are urging persons who may have been exposed and who are unvaccinated and susceptible to measles to get vaccinated, but avoid going out in public for 7-21 days following exposure. The child visited the 7-Eleven Grocery Store, located at 5101 NE 112th Avenue in Vancouver, WA, on Sunday, February 27, while contagious. Persons who visited the 7-Eleven Store located at 5101 NE 112th Avenue on Feb. 27 between 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. are considered exposed to measles. For susceptible people, measles vaccine is most effective if given within 72 hours of exposure. Unfortunately, that time window has passed and susceptible persons who were exposed are at risk for getting measles from 7- 21 days following exposure. Although susceptible individuals age 6 months or older who were at the 7-Eleven Store during these times should receive a measles vaccination as soon as p ...

VANCOUVER, Washington - The woman who admitted faking acid being tossed into her face, appeared in court today and asked for her trial to be postponed. On August 30, 2010, Storro told police a stranger had tossed acid into her face, leaving her with severe burns and scars. Police detectives were doubtful of her claims. They felt her claims didn't make much sense because her burns appeared to be far too even. They say a liquid tossed into the face as she claimed would have left burns on her neck and arms. The media first ate up the story, making national headlines. She was booked into network morning shows, her face wrapped in bandages, and with a very positive demeanor about what had happened. Then Storro finally admitted she had lied. She's currently being held on second-degree theft charges for the donations received from the community to help her with all her medical bills. Today Storro's lawyers asked the judge to postpone the trial for a few months for more time to prepare their case. The judge reset the trial date for May 16. ...

SPRINGFIELD, Oregon - After a grand jury indicted him for killing his wife, William Wiggins changed his plea to guilty of manslaughter so as to face 10 years in prison instead of 25 years to life. Wiggins told police that his wife, in her early 60's, drowned in her hot tub but charged him with murder five months later. Police say Wiggins could have gotten away with murder if they had not searched his wife's body for clues to her death. "The investigators did a good job at examining him," prosecutors say. "We found what we thought were what I feel are defense wounds on him, which raised our suspicion level and ultimately led to where we are at today, having him convicted." "Andrea was the love of my life and I will never forget her," said Wiggins to the judge. The victim’s father, Jack Nicholson, asked the judge for at least a 10-year sentence, saying his daughter was a "precious and special person" that she “worked all her life trying to make things better.” Police say Wiggins and his wife Andrea, an assistant dean at the University of Oregon's College of Education, had a troubled marriage. ...
