Visitor Tips and News About Oregon Vortex
I am a firefighter living in Anlauf, Oregon which is located north of Gold Hill and the Oregon Vortex. In the past twenty years I have witnessed three fatal accident scenes in which the only explanation was that a sober driver suddenly veers hard right into the same spot along I-5. The last one to happen was last month, which got me to thinking outside the box. What if there is a random occurring strong magnetic flux causing drivers to lose perception along this one spot? If another one occurs you definitely need to test this area.[Michael T Hinojosa, 07/09/2001]
