We just heard from two readers who say a culvert may have blown on Highway 101, just north of Neah-Kah-Nie High School on the north end of Rockaway Beach near the entrance to Nedonna Beach. … One said there’s deep water and debris all over the roadway and that “small cars probably won’t be able to make through, very soon.” We told ODOT and will post when we learn more. … Probably best to avoid the area altogether for now. The Miami-Foley Road is open.

“We live on 101 on Nedonna Creek and we are freaking out. Because the culvert is plugged the creek is backing up causing the creek to errode our property, especially in the back. Our back deck is hanging in mid air over the creek and the bank is now only 4 feet from the back of the house. We have talked to ODOT and they say they are aware of the problem. Meanwhile the creek is flowing down hwy. 101 flooding the roadway.”
