PACIFIC NORTHWEST, U.S. - A state of emergency has been declared in Washington State following a measles outbreak.

Cases have now been confirmed in Oregon as well.

Medical experts call it an outbreak boosted by lower-than-normal vaccination rates in an anti-vaccination U.S. "hot spot."

Public health officials in Washington say people may have been exposed to the dangerous disease at more than three dozen locations, including Portland International Airport, a Portland Trail Blazers game, an Amazon locker location and stores such as Costco and IKEA.

We're cooling down next week with the chance for rain. Before we get there, we look to stay sunny with mild temperatures.
