Coast Guard: Lost logs headed for Oregon shore

TILLAMOOK - The Coast Guard has a warning for residents and visitors along the

Oregon coast after a load of logs broke free from a barge Tuesday night.

Sometime Tuesday night, roughly 2,000 logs fell off a barge 100 miles southwest

of Tillamook. The logs were wrapped in bundles of five, and each bundle weighs

up to several tons. The logs are headed for the Oregon shore near Tillamook, but

officials have no idea when the logs will reach the beach.


Anyone one up for a paddle in 20ft seas with this stuff floating around?
