from Introduction on map plates --
Much of the public infrastructure and property in the city of Vernonia, Oregon, was damaged by a long-duration winter storm in December 2007. A series of three storms arrived over three consecutive days, producing extreme winds and heavy rain that resulted in widespread record flooding throughout the region. As directed by the State of Oregon Executive Order No. 10-07, “Rebuilding Vernonia’s Schools and the Surrounding Community in the Wake of December 2007 Storm,” the Oregon Department of Geology and Mineral Industries (DOGAMI) created a set of lidar-based maps to aid in assessing the vulnerability of critical and essential facilities to flood and landslide hazards. Landslide inventory maps for the city of Vernonia were also created in conjunction with this map series. See DOGAMI publications IMS-54 and IMS-55 for more information.
