One Of The Worst Disasters In U.S. History Happened Right Here In Oregon

When it comes to natural disasters, Oregon does not typically make the national news. We are at low risk of ever finding ourselves in the eye of a storm, be it a hurricane or tornado. However, there are still some disasters in our state’s history that have wreaked massive destruction. Back in 1948, Oregon’s second largest city disappeared in a single day.

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!
