A storm slammed the region Monday, and the effects were still being felt a day later.
Trees on power lines knocked out service to thousands of people in Washington County Tuesday.
At around 12:45 p.m. PGE said more than 4,200 people were without power in the area because of trees on lines at four different locations.
Workers estimated the power would be back on to most of those customers by 3:15 p.m.
In Clackamas County, more than 8,000 homes lost power Monday. Major damage was done in Oregon City, according to PGE, where winds took down a large oak tree and knocked out a transmission line.
That cut power to 3,600 customers in the area. It required crews to work throughout the night and morning to replace seven power poles.
PGE believed power could be restored to the majority of those customers by Tuesday evening.
Outside of Oregon City, PGE reported only 50 Clackamas County customers remained without power by 7 a.m. Tuesday.
On the Oregon coast, around 24,000 people lost power Monday. By Tuesday morning, Pacific Power said that number was down to around 3,000.
The coast was hit especially hard by Monday's storm. Highway 101 reopened to all cars near Seaside Tuesday morning. However, 9 inches of standing water remained on the roadway, limiting speeds to 5 mph through the area.
Wind at the coast topped 75 mph, causing trees to fall and close down sections of the highway.
Work continued into Tuesday afternoon on a number of other roads in the region.
State Route 4 in Washington between Cathlamet and Longview was shut down at 4 p.m. Monday and workers expected to have it open by 4 p.m. Tuesday.
Rocks, tree branches and other debris covered the highway and clogged culverts. Crews used two excavators and a vactor truck to clear the culverts and allow the water to drain before reopening the roadway.
Travel on Highway 20 between Eddyville and Newport, along with Highway 101 north of Lincoln City, will be restricted through Wednesday, according to the Oregon Department of Transportation.
A small landslide came down west of Eddyville on Highway 20, while crews continue replacing power poles damaged by the wind on Highway 101.
