SEASIDE, Ore. - Strong winds pushed two sea turtles ashore along the Oregon coast and they're now struggling to survive.

One was found on the beach in Seaside and the other was found in Gearhart. The Seaside Aquarium is caring for them.

According to the folks at the aquarium, it would be remarkable if two sea turtles washed ashore in a year, so two in one day is pretty much unheard of.

The turtles are being treated for hypothermia. It's unknown at this point whether they will survive.
