Strong winds, heavy rain cause damage

Sunday will bring another day of heavy rain.  The ground is saturated and that caused a hillside along Highway 30 near Harborton Road to break free.  The driver of a car lost control trying to avoid the debris and the car flipped onto its top.  The driver had a minor injury, but wasn't hospitalized.

Highway 101 north of Reedsport near milepost 206 was closed for approximately 2 hours Saturday after 15 - 20 trees fell or were leaning toward the highway. ODOT crews removed many of the trees.

Highway 34 about two miles east of Waldport is also blocked. Other coastal area roads may have some traffic restrictions. Drivers should monitor TripCheck.com.
