Coast Guard Rescues Twenty From Flooding in Neskowin, Oregon

The US Coast Guard evacuated 20 people and three dogs from an RV park in Neskowin, Oregon, on November 12, as heavy rains in the Pacific Northwest caused flash flooding.

Severe weather led to partial closures of US Highway 101, which runs along the Oregon coast. Landslides were also reported on Friday in the state.

Citing the threat of rising water and potential mudslides in Tillamook County, the Coast Guard coordinated an aerial rescue of people in an RV park close to Neskowin Creek. This footage, released by the Coast Guard on Friday, shows the rescue operation in Neskowin.
