'Someone will die': Jefferson Fire urges floaters to avoid Santiam River

The Jefferson Fire District is urging residents not to float the Santiam River between Greens Bridge and the Jefferson boat ramp, as there have been 19 water rescues in that area since Sunday.

Crazy huh RC? As you mentioned on another thread, the water is FREEZING cold. Not even an OLYMPIC swimmer could survive. Plus many are getting trapped in log jams.

AVOID that stretch of the North Santiam folks!!! Tell everyone you know about it too.
