Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber is asking the President to declare a “State of Emergency” in Curry County. Rough waters caused by Japan's monstrous earthquake damaged boats and docks and put some business operations on hold at the Port of Brookings Harbor on Oregon’s south coast. Officials have estimated damages at $6.7 million and the Governor is requesting federal assistance for the area. The Governor's recovery cabinet, created last week, has already secured some assistance of the County, including $500,000 for to be used with FEMA funds to repair damage to the Port's docks. The State has also suspended the Port's debt payments and the Oregon Marine Board is working with the Port to identify equipment it needs to survey water depth.
