I live right on the southern Oregon coast. Actually 230 ft up off the water facing south (the worst possible direction). The NOAA data I am seeing says wind gusts over 80 mph but nothing yet I have seen that says this is a "mega storm". Like other people said above it seems to fit within the description of the ordinary winter storm around here -- at least that is what I am hoping.

So far so good around here too. The forecasts read far more scary than anything that has hit us.

coastal storm

we had a house in Yachats for many years. about an hour south of lincoln city. storms are common, you want to be out of the velocity zone and not under big trees. if they are up in the higher parts of lincoln city and away from big trees I would just sit back and enjoy mother nature.

It is so clarifying to get actual reports from folks there on the ground. Thanks for checking in with what you are experiencing.

Here is the sort of worst possible cases scenario that the forecasters are reporting.

Interesting contrast, hoping it stays on the light side of the reports!

As mentioned above storm watching on the coast is great sport. Many years ago while living in So. Calif. we were visiting friends in Salem, Oregon. They found great joy in reserving a motel right on the beach so we enjoy some up close storm watching.

We moved to the Northwest nearly 20 years ago and the only concerns we have during these storms are falling trees and an occasional power outage.

Your kids are moving to a beautiful place in both good and bad weather. I hope they enjoy it.

I'm following a similar thread on another forum.
The reports so far from all over the PNW are far less intense than the forecast predicted.

Hope your family are doing ok Colorado Lady, and staying touch to put your mind at rest.

The weather folks these days seem inclined to really build up the forecast.
In my mind to cover themselves in the remote possibility that things could get that bad.
Unfortunately the boy that cried wolf comes to mind.
This does undermine their credibility.

Cheers Richard

It's all pretty routine for the Oregon Coast. This storm is a little on the larger size but it's not uncommon for the Coast to be a tourist destination for storms.

Would agree with Tevake. Wind and rain but not as predicted with one exception: The town of Manzanita where there was a reported tornado. We are close to Lincoln City area and have heard no reports of catastrophe.

I see the cancelled the high-wind warning already for seattle area. Other than lots of heavy rain and a flicker in lights, nothing happened.

Folks, you have no idea just how comforting it is to get reports, as above, from those of you who are living in the Region and understand how these storms affect residents. I really appreciate you all! Evelyn.

I just finished reading another thread on the predicted PNW storm, along with a series of weather report blogs from Chris Mass. The storm has apparently passed, without the aforementioned devastion predicted. Thank God.

In reading many responses on his blog...it surprises me that many are seemingly disappointed or even angry....that the worse did not occur! IMO, that is pure madness!

Yes, the meteorologists do intend to give the "worse case scenario", and I think that is a good thing! If they downplayed it, and there was devastation, because people did not prepare.....would that be preferred? I THINK NOT!!!

And Cliff Mass does provide all the available factual data to back up his predictions. What more could someone want? As in bad weather conditions in any part of our country exist, I would much rather be prepare for the worse case scenario, and not face that situation, than to be TOTALLY UNPREPARED WHEN THE DEVASTATING WEATHER EVENT DOES OCCUR!!!

I, personally, am greatful that my grandkids were not hit by a terrible weather event....and am equally greatful, that they will be prepared for any event...just in case! I will see to that, as much as I am able. I will order and ship directly to them...emergency preparedness food supplies, Led lanterns, etc., to assist them in preparations for future storm threats....and hope they never need to use them.

This one missed them, and I thank God for that! Thank you all for your input on this storm system. I know that my family will come to appreciate this opportunity and this grand adventure in moving from a small landlocked Colorado mountain town to an area, that is not only beautiful, but, has an abundance of opportunities, good job prospects, and last, but, not least....they are now living in an area of marvelous natural preserves, where they literally have anything they might want in outdoor possibilities....beach, mountains...and everything in between. I now have more than enough reason for future trips to the PNW coast!

With all due respect, I think you're over-reacting about west coast weather. We get several storms every winter. I've lost count of the numbers of trees that have fallen around me and the power outages I've sat through. In daylight, yes, we go storm watching. No big deal. You stay away from waves and open a bottle of wine, light a fire, and hunker down. No biggie.

Re: post #26. I think you missed the entire point of my post, I.e., to be prepared and hope you never need to use it! AND my comments of the opportunities that my grandkids will discover in their new adventure. These are POSITIVES, not negative features. No, I don't think I'm over reacting, I simply care about my family.

All due respect!! But, thank you for your input.

Try to cut the Meteorologists some slack

I was born in Tornado Alley, moved to a few blocks from where Katrina broke the levee in New Orleans. Evacuation was common.

More than once, a Hurricane changed course right before it hit us. But some areas got hit that weren't expecting it.

I thought I was done with all of that when I moved to the north east. Then the ice storm hit. NO POWER FOR TWO WEEKS !

My point is that weather can be unpredictable. The worst case scenario can and does happen.

I was ready for Hurricane Matthew. It drizzled for 15 minutes, balmy breeze, and we needed rain.
