Sheriff's Office logoThe Sheriff's Office received a report of a submerged vehicle in the McKenzie River near milepost 31 (East of Ben and Kay Dorris Boat Ramp area) at approximately 6:57 p.m. on Monday night. It is unknown how the vehicle, a 2011 Kia Utility SUV, ended up in the water.

KayakerLEABURG: McKenzie Fire & Rescue crews had an out of the ordinary call last Tuesday. At approximately 11:45 on April 29th someone walked into the Leaburg station to report a paddler had turned his kayak over and was on the other side of the cable that crosses Leaburg Lake in front of the dam.

Oregon Dept. of Transportation crews finally completed blowing snow out of the middle of Highway 242 late Monday. However, according to ODOT spokesman Rick Little, "It is very important that early users understand they will likely encounter a layer of ice on the asphalt when temperatures remain near freezing and high water conditions when the temperature is warmer."
In addition, and very importantly, the extreme cold temperatures of the winter have resulted in the heaving of asphalt at two locations:  Milepost 72.01 and 75.03.
