Falling Tree Kills Priest Lake Camper

Idaho Panhandle National Forests staffers are scrambling to assess tree damage at developed forest sites after a visitor was killed in the Stagger Inn Campground northwest of Priest Lake by a damaged tree during thunder storms on Sunday night. The Stagger Inn is at the Roosevelt Grove of Ancient Cedars in Pend Oreille County just west of the Idaho state line. Other campgrounds are being evaluated before the Labor Day holiday/Rich Landers, SR. More here.
