Friday, as severe winds and wildfires threatened Oregon, utilities cut power for thousands.
Red Cedar Court homeowners in Portland, Oregon’s West Hills reported their houses were darkened Sunday morning.
On Sunday, the homeowners’ homes were among 100 in Oregon without electricity due to PGE and Pacific Power maintenance.
Utility providers shut off the region’s power on Friday because catastrophic wildfires and strong winds threatened the safety of thousands of western Oregon residents.
Sunday morning, Pacific Electricity stated all of its service regions had power, while PGE said it was striving to do the same.
However, despite PGE’s assurances to customers in the West Hills that energy would be restored, a significant number of residences in that area are still without power.
Everyone in this room is completely immersed in a book. A resident of West Hills named Zahra Hannan gave the region the description of being “very ancient.”
She claimed they knew Thursday they’d be without electricity for a day. It’s been 48 hours since 10 a.m. Sunday.
PGE won’t respond, said Hannan. According to folklore, people answer “up in the air, then 6 a.m., then 10 a.m.” 10 a.m. and still nothing.
