RECOVERY EFFORT FOR CENTRALIA MAN FEARED DROWNED IN CHEHALIS RIVER

ADNA – A Centralia man is presumed drowned in the Chehalis River below the rails to trails trestle along the Willapa Hills Trail near Adna. A cold Chehalis River water recovery effort, searching for 18-year old Zach Ragar who disappeared in the water earlier this week, includes the expertise of the Lewis County Sheriff’s Swift Water Rescue Team and the Thurston County Sheriff’s  Dive Team. Lewis County Sheriff’s Chief Dusty Breen says the dive team uses different types of sonar to assist them in their searches.  Breen says because of all of the flooding in the area over the years there is a lot of debris in the rivers and there’s a lot of things (for someone) to be entangled on. He adds that it’s an intricate process to try and figure out if the victim would still be in the area where they went in or are further down and the dive team looks at several areas. ____________________________________________________ CENTRALIA – Quite a sight in the sky above Lewis County Thursday night. Bright and slow moving from west to east. The National Weather Service Seattle said in a tweet the, “widely reported bright objects in the sky were the debris from a Falcon 9 rocket that did not successfully have a deorbit burn.” Meteorologist Dustin Guy in Seattle says there are no expected impacts on the ground in the area.
