Oregonians Will Never Forget One Of The Worst Environmental Disasters In Our State In 1999
Oregon is no novice when it comes to natural disasters; we’ve suffered horrible wildfires, severe winter storms, damaging floods, landslides, and even tsunamis. Unfortunately, Mother Nature isn’t the only destructive force in Oregon – sometimes man-made disasters cause huge amounts of damage. The New Carissa oil spill in 1999 is considered the worst in the Beaver State’s history.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
