Storm goes easy on Oregon Coast

MEDFORD — A storm has rushed through Southern Oregon, dropping less rain than expected on the coast but lingering inland over the Rogue Valley.

The Mail Tribune reported only minor flooding in Medford. Rainfall amounted to 2.22 inches, breaking the daily record by nearly an inch.

The storm dropped about 3 inches of rain in Curry County, less than the 8 inches originally forecast.

Officials said there were no significant disruptions in Brookings, where the city is recovering from a storm earlier this month that City Manager Gary Milliman said caused about $2 million in damage to public infrastructure.
