Thousands of residents in northwest Portland started their Monday morning without power.

At 6 a.m., more than 2,500 Portland General Electric customers were without power.

PGE says a tree came down Sunday night and took out a feeder line. They are unsure if it is weather related.

Crews are working on putting the line back.
