Wasco County Readies For Eclipse Crowds

Wasco County officials are getting ready for crowds coming to view the full solar eclipse on August 21.  The northern edge of the path of totality is about eight miles south of Maupin.  Wasco County Sheriff Lane Magill says they have received estimates as high as 40,000 people from the Maupin-Antelope-Shaniko area to the Jefferson County.  He says the Sheriff’s Office is planning to establish two mobile command posts in that area during the days surrounding the eclipse, one at the Cow Canyon Rest Area and another at the Highway 26 and Highway 216 area.  Magill says a letter was sent to residents of the area earlier this month detailing preparations they should make for the anticipated crowds coming to view the eclipse.
