State of Emergency Declared In Vernonia

For the second December in a row, the city of Vernonia is making the news… and not in a fun way.

Three feet of snow and power outages have prompted both Columbia County and the city of Vernonia to declare a state of emergency. They’ve opened a warming center stocked with Red Cross supplies, but volunteer resources are wearing thin.  
Are you near Vernonia? Is there a way you can help out?
