PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Multiple outages left thousands without power in Beaverton following heavy rain Saturday morning, Portland General Electric said, though most of those affected had power back by noon.

Around 9 a.m., about 5,446 residents near the area of Southwest Murray Boulevard and Jenkins Road lost power, according to an outage detection map from PGE.

PGE did not clarify the cause of this outage.

The second outage, caused by a fallen tree, took place hours later. Around 12:40 p.m., a tree fell on a power line, severing electricity to about 1,569 residents near the corner of SW Scholls Ferry Road and Roy Rogers Road, according to PGE’s outage map.

Residents had power restored around 3:45 p.m.

The outages come ahead of a forecasted major storm Sunday, which KOIN 6 meteorologists said could bring high wind speeds and fallen trees around the metro area.
