Description

The flood of January 1990, caused a lot of damage in the Nehalem Valley. The Harold Bronson residence on the Nehalem River shows the damage in the photo. The Nehalem River rose to the highest point ever recorded since monitoring systems were put in place.Houses in Angler's Acres were filled with mud and debris. 51 heifers were lost to the flood waters at Dean Esplin's farm. Power was out for approx. three days, in some areas.

The railroad had 25 slides, 20 culverts to repair, 40 trees down, a washed out trestle with an estimate of 1.54 million for repairs. Roads also buckled and washed out in spots.

Most were rescued by boats, no lives were lost.
