Heavy Rain Causes Flooding in Neskowin, Oregon

Flooding overtook parts of western Oregon on Friday, November 12, spurring the evacuation of an RV park in Neskowin threatened by a rising creek and potential mudslides, the US Coast Guard (USCG) said.

Neskowin resident Kathleen Ruby posted videos she recorded on Friday morning as floodwaters covered roads near South Beach, an area on the south side of town.

“Looks like this whole thing’s underwater. Look at this,” Ruby says in the footage as water courses over the road ahead. “We may be in big trouble.”
