Florence Woman Dies In Landslide

Lane County Sheriff's Office

A 70-year old Florence woman was killed when a landslide hit her house. Early Friday morning, the Lane County Sheriff’s office responded to the scene near Mercer Lake and Santa roads. Delores Miller was found dead amongst the debris. Her husband, who was also in the residence, suffered minor injuries and was able to call 911.

Siuslaw Valley Fire and Rescue say Miller died after large debris breached the area of the home where she was located. One of the couples’ dogs also died in the mud slide.
