MEDFORD, Ore. — Wind knocked out power for tens of thousands of people in Oregon and Northern California.
Fire crews and Pacific Power teams had to deal with downed trees crushing power lines and damaging property. Representatives with Pacific Power say they had every single crew available working to restore power throughout the day.
The Rogue Valley was mostly spared from power outages, but 25,000 homes lost power throughout Northern California and all of Oregon. Meanwhile the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office actually lost their 9-1-1 lines in the northern parts of the county.
Pacific Power says their crews are still on call if further need arises.
