Washington and Oregon Dairy Farmers Evacuate Cattle After Rising Flood Waters


Farmers located on the North West Coast in Washington and Oregon are facing massive flood waters. One such case is Kenny and Kylie Coppini located approximately 15 miles from the Pacific Ocean, sit and watch and wait for the flood waters to recede on their dairy farm. The Tillamook dairy farmers have been hit with the recent flooding that has washed over the west coast in Washington and Oregon. With the cows milked at Crazy-For Holsteins and Jo-Dee Swiss for the morning they are hoping by night fall the water will not have taken over their farm but are prepared if the waters continue to rise. Jodi Coppini, sister to Kenny has been posting updates on social media and reports that another high tide is due in at 11:25 am and that could be dangerous to the farm. There cows have now be evacuated to a farmer on higher ground as water levels continue to rise.  Family friend Ryan Landolt, showed up and says let’s go. They had a quick team meeting and the first load is headed out.

The following photos were sent by Kenny and Kylie Coppini via Jodi Coppini showing the flood waters on the farm.
