(Portland, OR)  --  The Oregon Health Authority has expanded the health advisory for the Willamette River at Cathedral Park to an area upriver to the railroad bridge.  An algae bloom can cause cyanotoxins that make people and pets sick.  The advisory warns people to avoid swimming and drinking the water in that area.  High-speed water activities, such as water skiing, should also be avoided.
