Pendleton flooded over the weekend. McKay Creek spilled its banks -- but it could have been worse. McKay Reservoir can handle 71,000+ cubic feet of water and it was at 70k with higher readings earlier still being verified. If it had spilled over the edge of the dam it may have ended up like Oroville, California. The community rallied to fill sand bags and authorities are giving each other high fives it wasn't worse. But like any natural disaster, there's no way to wrap your head around the devastation until you SEE IT.
This amazing drone footage makes my jaw drop.
