NOAA Joins The ARMY (Corps) - A Forum Announcement

Yes, the photo on the left is Route 611 in Forks on April 4, 2005 at 6:14 AM. We learned today from an announcement in the Morning Call that US Representative Charles Dent is sponsoring a flood solutions forum at Lafayette College on Tuesday, August 2nd at 7:00 PM in Oechsle Hall. The presenters will include the Army Corps of Engineers, the National Weather Service, the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the state Department of Environmental Protection. Call Dent's office if you need more information (610-861-9734).

The photo in the upper right is what Frost Hollow looked like on April 9th after the flood waters receded. At the BoS Meeting on 7/21/05 we were told that Frost Hollow Road might reopen in a few weeks. Today's Express Times (Sarah Mausolf) confirms this! YES!

I know this is very tardy.....but I attended the May meeting when Roger Ruggles spoke/discussed area water problems. He was an excellent speaker and spoke specifically about Forks' water problems.
Congratulations FAC on your "birthday." I hope you bring many more excellent speakers to our attention.
