Landslide Alert Issued For Central And Eastern Oregon

Tropical Storm Hilary’s heavy rains could trigger flooding and landslides in central and eastern Oregon.

Hilary made landfall on Mexico’s Baja California coast on Sunday, but its effects are expected to be felt as far away as Idaho in the coming days.

According to the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries, flood watches are in effect for portions of eastern and central Oregon, including the Grande Ronde Valley, Northern Blue Mountains, Southern Blue Mountains, Wallowa County, Baker County, Harney County, Malheur County, the Lower Treasure Valley, John Day Basin, and Ochoco-John Day Highlands, from Sunday evening to Tuesday afternoon.
