Jennifer Chamberlin in the State Office of Emergency Management says they're rapidly tallying up the damage from recent flooding. The State will qualify for federal assistance if that total meets state criteria. Chamberlin says their totals are pointing toward the state being able to ask for assistance from FEMA for damage to the State's infrastructure. The Governor may be able to apply by next week.

Damage estimates are rolling in from the storm two weeks ago that hit much of western Oregon. Lincoln County Emergency Manager Jenny Demaris pegs the cost at nearly $6-million, and says many residents are dealing with an extreme amount of financial hardship. She says the winds, rains, melting snowpack, and high tides all combined to create a perfect storm, and recovery will take a long time.
