The constant flooding on an almost annual basis would be concerning to me thinking about relocating to this area. While it does seem to be concentrated to specific areas, I would imagine it would make getting around challenging when it is flooded.

Flooding only happens on king tides and accompanied by pineapple express storm. A tide or a tropical rain by itself won't give a flooding situation, you need both to occur at the same time. It does happen. Flooding receeds quickly because of the tide fall and rapid river drainage. If you are up in the surrounding hills, you will be fine. Let the PC's Tsunami Map be your guide.

PC is an interesting place. Mom bought a place in PC in 1970 and is now my sister's home. My nieces made good wages as teenagers working at the local restaurants being, young, attractive, surfers, and free use of the house. Lots of changes over the years. I have seen lots of boom and bust cycles there. May-June and Sept-Oct are primo months. July and August are touristy. I've seen days of 100degrees off the beach, and 55degrees on the beach. Fog so thick on July 4th that you could be next to the firework launch site and only see a brightening of the fog and muffled boom. And the sunrise and sunsets spectacular. Depending where you live in PC, you may experience frightening storms or storms that are just wet. In late fall you hear the coming of the geese and the elk rut. I've seen the ocean as flat as glass on Jan 01 and stormy on Jan 02.

Housing is a problem. Housing is relatively inexpensive vs Bend or the Valley homes for purchase. Finding a rental may be challenge.
Use a the local RE and RE search engines.

Salem is 90 minutes (careful). Portland ~100. Lincoln City ~30. Tillamook ~50.
A small post office. No delivery. There is HS internet. A nice local library and small accommodating grocery store.
A local brewery (Pelican) and couple of local year round pubs/restaurants. Stocked hardware-lumber store.
Nice community center.
The people who developed the cape, Kiwanda shores, the community center, the Hotel, I hear are nice people who saw an opportunity in the 90's.

Lots of activities that are outdoor related. PC has a small airfield. Wave to the CoastGuard as they helicopter patrol the coastline or say hello if they land at the airfield.

100 degrees must be rare. Or have unusually high-temp heat waves become a thing the last few years? Seattle was predicted to have a week in the 100's within several more weeks in the 90's a few years ago, but the triple-digit temps never occurred, mercifully. And Seattle is inland, where temps trend warmer anyway, so I'm surprised the OR coast may get 100-degree temps, other than as a fluke.

The only cities on the Oregon Coast that have ever recorded temperatures of 100 degrees are North Bend and Astoria and that was in 1979 https://www.plantmaps.com/oregon-rec...rature-map.php

Most other towns on the coast have all-time record highs of around 93-97 degrees and average high temperatures in July and August in the low 60s.

There are two instruments that were nonexistent in Mom's beach house. -Clocks and thermometers.
OK, I concede. Occasionally, it gets very warm and depending where you are are, very hot or very cold when the summer's east wind comes down thru the gorge.

I love the Oregon coast BUT it is on nature's shortlist. 35% odds that within the next 50 years it will be swept away. Research the Cascadia Fault.

What's your source on the 35% odds?

The coast won't be swept away. It will look largely the same. But people foolish enough to build and own houses on the shoreline will likely lose them. And many communities might be cut off from the rest of the state for long periods of time where 101 collapses, or the mountain roads to the valley.

As I recall those odds are related here:

Yes, we will have a coast but it won't be the same.
