Portland Police and Portland Fire & Rescue have responded to several reports of large trees down, blocking roads throughout the City of Portland. 

Earlier in the afternoon, scaffolding on a building project located at Southwest Fourth and Washington came crashing down on the street, hitting at least one vehicle.

Outside of downtown, Southeast Cesar E. Chavez Boulevard is currently closed between East Burnside and Northeast Glisan Street after a large tree fell and blocked all lanes. It is expected to be closed for several hours. Calls of trees down that are blocking roadways or otherwise are creating an emergency situation should be reported to 9-1-1.  Minor incidents not threatening life or property should be reported to the Non-Emergency Line at (503) 823-3333. 

Crews are working across PGE's service area to restore power from today's wind storm. As of 5:15 p.m., approximately 68,000 customers are without power. PGE reminds customers to stay away from all downed power lines and report them and other power outages either online atPortlandGeneral.com via a web-enabled smart phone, or by calling 503-464-7777 or 800-544-1795.
