Surfrider Foundation Releases Coast Guard Incident Response Maps

The decision to move the US Coast Guard Helicopter operations from Newport to North Bend has drawn much concern and opposition from the commercial and recreational fishing community, but non-boater recreational users such as unknowing surfers, swimmers and beach-goers likely have more to lose in this murky decision that has ignited statewide opposition. To help represent that recreational and broader community concern, Surfrider Foundation’s Newport Chapter has released a set of story maps based on US Coast Guard incident response data to better visualize and demonstrate statistical grounds for maintaining the helicopter operations within Newport.

Dirty Debris Does PNW – Big Waves + King Tides = Major Influx

The combination of recent large swell activity and the Dec 21st-23rd ‘king tides’ have resulted in a large influx in debris all along the Oregon coast.
