PORTLAND, Ore. — The arrival of rain and lower temperatures has led authorities to drop all evacuation levels in the Hood River Valley.

Evacuation notices had been issued because of the large wildfire that’s been burning in the Columbia River Gorge since Labor Day weekend.

Though fire danger is easing, the Hood River County Sheriff’s Office reminds residents and motorists that a flash-flood advisory is in effect, and landslides are a possibility.
