A strong storm caused property damage and left dozens of people without power across the metro area Sunday.
Wind blew a tree onto power lines along North Interstate Avenue, causing several people in the area to lose power for a few hours.
"It was really crazy," said Desiree Norris, who passed the time playing a board game with her boyfriend. "We assumed it was weather-related because it was really windy and rainy like it has been all day."
Across the street from her home, Portland General Electric repair crews were hard at work trying to fix the damage and restore power.
Another neighbor, Roberta Ruble, went to the store to buy flashlights in case the power didn't come back on before dark.
"I've got candles set up everywhere, and I'm going to make it through," she said.
Another tree came down on a house in Oregon City.
"They say there's not a ton a damage," said neighbor Claire Sheets. "It pretty much just hit and broke on the top of the house, but they're just as worried to see if the other half falls because you never know where it's going to land."
There were no reports of any injuries.
