Local News


In eastern Oregon, the town of John Day and the surrounding area, is being affected by major flooding. The high waters were brought on by a weekend thunderstorm with heavy rains that mixed with record snow-melt.

In the town of John Day, we talked to the Program Director at local radio station, KJDY. Kelly Workman says every 5 years of so they seem to get a big flooding event like this. A local high school seems to be the hardest hit this time: “Grant Union High School, right between John Day and Canyon City; they've had damage to their running track. Part of the tracks been washed out. They had 6 inches water in both the new gym and the old gym and estimated 3-4 feet of water in their boiler room. They're estimated right around $700,000 of damage at Grant Union High School."
