Pete Nichols talks to Waterkeeper Alliance Senior Organizer Lesley Adams about a fracked gas pipeline that would trample farms, ranches, and tribal lands to reach a proposed liquefied natural gas (LNG) export terminal in Coos Bay, Oregon. The proposed 229-mile pipeline would impact more than 400 waterways, including the Rogue, Umpqua, and Klamath Rivers. The LNG terminal would be one of the largest climate polluters in the state.

"We have broken the record," Robert Ruehl of the National Weather Service tells KHSU. 

As of 12pm today, it's 71F degrees at the Woodley Island weather station, breaking the previous daily high of 70F degrees set in 1987. Eureka also experienced 70F degree heat back in 1941. 

This heat comes on the heels of the rainiest October ever recorded in Eureka.
