EUGENE, Ore.– Downed trees line the roads after powerful winds and heavy rain slammed across the region overnight.
Eugene Public Works waited until the wind advisory was lifted at 6am on Wednesday morning, to start cleanup.
Crews focused on clearing blockages on the roads for the morning and afternoon commute, and then moved on to cleaning tree limbs and debris.
If you see a downed tree blocking the right of way, you should call Public Works. If you see a downed tree on your property, you should call an arborist. If you see a downed power line, treat it as a live line and don’t touch it. Call either 911 or your power provider.
