MOSIER -- Jeremy Huskey, 23, was working construction in Hillsboro on Friday when he learned of the mandatory evacuation of his neighborhood in Mosier.
He had called his brother, Larry Huskey, 25, and was told they had been given two minutes to clear out. Larry couldn't talk long because he was frantically packing. 1
