VANCOUVER -- Hundreds turned out Tuesday night to weigh in on a proposed oil terminal at the Port of Vancouver.

The proposed Tesoro Savage Terminal would handle up to 380,000 barrels of crude oil a day, hauled in from North Dakota.

Opponents said it's bad for the environment and puts communities in danger.

But supporters said it will provide 120 permanent local jobs.

The Port of Vancouver has approved a lease for the terminal but the project is just beginning a year-long examination by Washington energy officials.
