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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
