High winds coming from the Columbia River Gorge Sunday have caused power outages for residents in the eastern part of Multnomah County for the fourth day in a row.
According to Portland General Electric, more than 3,900 customers were without service as of 2 p.m. Sunday.
PGE officials cited high winds for the vast majority of the outages. FOX 12 Chief Meteorologist Mark Nelsen noted that gusts coming through the Gorge were reaching as high as 75 to 80 mph.
The winds have also caused a number of downed trees and other damage in the area over the last few days.
Crews have been working to restore service, which PGE estimates should return by Sunday evening.
