Wave of eclipse-viewing visitors may inundate state, jam traffic and crimp gas supplies

The roughly 1 million ­visitors expected to flood into Oregon for the Aug. 21 eclipse are very likely to cause ­traffic jams, crowded stores and even crimped gas supplies, the Oregon Department of ­Transportation warned Friday.

Oregonians are used to dealing with large-scale problems: ice storms, floods and forest fires, plus the fear of tsunamis and earthquakes.
