ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) -- The Coast Guard is closing several river bars in Washington and Oregon and to all vessels because of hazardous conditions Sunday.
Coast Guard officials in Seattle and Astoria, Ore., are closing the bars at Quillayute (KWIL-uh-yoot) River in Washington, as well as Siuslaw River and Depoe Bay in Oregon.
The Coast Guard says it will re-open the waterways as soon as offshore weather improves.
