Landslip splits road in Oregon and sets off a water crisis

January 29, 2011 – LINCOLN CITY, Ore. – “Residents of Lincoln City are being told to prepare for the possibility of water rationing after torrential rains caused a county road to give way and put the city’s water main in jeopardy. Schooner Creek Road was closed last Friday due to a landslide and 7,000 residents received a reverse 9-1-1 call warning them about the possibility of a water shortage that could last a couple of days. Lincoln City Public Works officials are asking residents to stockpile water by filling the bathtub and have gallons of drinking water available should the road keep sliding and break the 24-inch water main. The reverse 9-1-1 call on Friday created a water-buying frenzy at local grocery stores that emptied shelves.”  –KATU TV
