CULVER, OR -- Weekend thunderstorms produced a handful of small fires near Sisters, Tumalo, Bend and in the Badlands Wilderness. Firefighters held all to less than a quarter of an acre.
The storms also caused flooding in some areas. Saturday night, Jefferson County authorities were forced to close SW Jordan Road, leading to Lake Billy Chinook, due to a small landslide. It reopened Sunday.
And, the wet weather forced the cancellation of a prescribed burn planned for Monday, southwest of Bend.
