Many natural features of this region resulted from slides triggered by weather or seismic activity. Less than 4 months ago, about 350 miles from Eugene, a massive landslide was hard to miss.</p> Mon, 14 Jul 2014 13:00:00 +0000 Desmond O'Boyle 17362 at http://klcc.org Darrington Rodeo: Young Woman Lets Go Of Oso Landslide On The Back Of A Fast Horse http://klcc.org/post/darrington-rodeo-young-woman-lets-go-oso-landslide-back-fast-horse <p>Now we’re going to take you to a small timber-town rodeo in Washington. In the town of Darrington, the Timberbowl Rodeo saw some of its largest crowds ever this past weekend. Neighbors gathered at the event to hug, shake hands and heal up a bit from this year's nearby terrible Oso landslide. Correspondent Anna King was there, and has this profile of a young rodeo cowgirl.</p><p></p><p></p> Mon, 23 Jun 2014 13:45:08 +0000 Anna King 16099 at http://klcc.org Darrington Rodeo: Young Woman Lets Go Of Oso Landslide On The Back Of A Fast Horse Highway 530 Closure Has Deep Impacts On Community http://klcc.org/post/highway-530-closure-has-deep-impacts-community <p>It’s been three weeks now since the landslide hit the tiny community of Oso. Those residents and people from the nearby towns of Darrington and Arlington are still grieving and still trying to pick up the pieces. And one huge impediment is highway 530: parts of it are still closed. That’s the main thoroughfare there. For Darrington residents, not having that road is a big problem. Mayor Dan Rankin says his town is kind of a disaster within a disaster.</p> Sat, 12 Apr 2014 18:19:43 +0000 Sarah Lerner 11640 at http://klcc.org Logging The Edge Of Oso Slide's No-logging Zone http://klcc.org/post/logging-edge-oso-slides-no-logging-zone <p>Washington State officials say they didn't approve clearcutting inside a no-logging zone directly above Saturday's deadly landslide in the town of Oso. But aerial photos show a clearcut extending into the zone where a loss of trees would heighten the risk of landslides.</p> Fri, 28 Mar 2014 16:48:30 +0000 John Ryan 10702 at http://klcc.org Logging The Edge Of Oso Slide's No-logging Zone Would Oregon Forestry Rules Have Stopped Logging Above The Oso Landslide? http://klcc.org/post/would-oregon-forestry-rules-have-stopped-logging-above-oso-landslide <p>After heavy rains triggered fatal landslides in 1996, Oregon rewrote its rules on where logging can happen in landslide-prone areas.</p><p>Oregon law now clearly states that you can't log in areas with where logging could trigger a public safety risk from a certain type of landslide.</p><p>That is -- the type of landslide that sends a thin layer of soil washing down a slope and taking everything on the surface along with it. Removing trees from steep slopes can raise the risk of that kind of landslide. John Seward's job with the Oregon Department of Forestry is to avoid that risk.</p> Fri, 28 Mar 2014 16:26:03 +0000 Cassandra Profita 10699 at http://klcc.org Would Oregon Forestry Rules Have Stopped Logging Above The Oso Landslide? Volunteers Recover Bodies of Friends And Neighbors in Washington Landslide http://klcc.org/post/volunteers-recover-bodies-friends-and-neighbors-washington-landslide <p>Wednesday night an emergency commander in Darrington, Washington told a packed town meeting the number of confirmed dead in the Oso landslide is now 25. And dozens are still missing.<br />The numbers change as bodies are recovered. It’s grim and exhausting work.<br /><br />&nbsp;</p><p></p><p></p> Thu, 27 Mar 2014 13:45:51 +0000 Phyllis Fletcher 10610 at http://klcc.org Volunteers Recover Bodies of Friends And Neighbors in Washington Landslide Landslide Science Not Connecting With County Planning Decisions http://klcc.org/post/landslide-science-not-connecting-county-planning-decisions <p>The Northwest is a region prone to landslides. That, of course, is on many people’s minds as the town of Oso, Washington recovers from the tragic slide that happened there this past weekend. There is a lot of scientific data and maps showing where landslides have occurred in the past. The question is whether or not it’s getting used.</p><p>Bonnie Brown sent me a picture of the cabin her parents built on the Stillaguamish River in the 70s.</p> Wed, 26 Mar 2014 03:43:29 +0000 Ashley Ahearn 10517 at http://klcc.org Landslide Science Not Connecting With County Planning Decisions
