Second Storm Slams Northwest

National Guard troops using inflatable rafts are moving residents out of flooded Vernonia, Oregon.
   A Guard spokesman says they're moving through streets and backyards to rescue people from the mountain timber town northwest of Portland who have been largely cut off by landslides.
   The storm that hit Oregon and Washington state yesterday with hurricane force winds is blamed in the deaths of five people. Tens of thousands remain without power.
   The storm has now moved to the Upper Plains and Midwest.
Forecasters say parts of North Dakota could get socked with up to nine inches of snow.
   And farther east, lake-effect snow storms overnight have dumped up to a foot of snow on a big chunk of upstate New York.
