PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — With more rain forecasted, snow falling in some places, and colder temps moving in, many Oregonians and Washingtonians are dealing with power outages reported across the state.
Power was knocked out Monday morning for more than 100 Pacific Power customers living north of Junction City. It’s unclear what caused the outage, but the utility company said crews are working to restore power as quickly as possible.
