It was throughout Oregon, not just Astoria. Some were health related, heart attacks, etc.

Its hard to tell how many deaths are natural or just exasaserbated b/c of the stress of the storm.

Charlie - I am so glad your boat is safe. I know you'll be glad to lay eyes on her again. Godspeed!

Thanks Anne:

I hope to go up in January and vist her. Good luck with your search for a boat. There are lots of opinions out there. I'm sure you'll use what is useful and take the rest with a grain of salt.
