Winter storms have knocked out power to around 4,000 Oregon customers since last night. According to Portland General Electric and Pacific Power maps, the outages are mainly centered around the northern Oregon coast near Warrenton and the I-5 corridor north of Corvallis. Pockets of additional power interruptions are also spread around the Willamette Valley.

High winds and fallen trees due to strong storm cells throughout the state have been the main culprit, but crews are working diligently to restore power as soon as possible.
