The flooding Sandy River is sending a lot of trees downstream, and they're collecting in a log jam near the I-84 bridge in Troutdale. ODOT's Brad Wurfel says a logging company has a "yarder" pulling the thousands of trees from the water. At one point the log jam spanned the entire river. There was a concern the river would back up and posed a flood threat. The logging equipment will remain in place to pull more logs from the river until water levels decrease.
