Tiny Depoe Bay, Oregon, Braces For 'Major Catastrophe' Of Eclipse-Watchers

Wochit Headline News - Saturday, 12 August 2017  (1 week ago)
Oregon's Depoe Bay is preparing for the first total eclipse to traverse the continental United States in a century as if a natural disaster was bearing down on the small coastal city. The town, home to 1,500 residents and a single traffic light, is near the spot of land where the total eclipse will first appear on Aug. 21st. That distinction has raised fears that a tidal wave of visitors will descend on Depoe Bay to get a first glimpse at "totality" a week from Monday.
