Oct. 16--Portland crews worked around the clock for days in advance of the storms that started Thursday and went into the weekend to reduce disruption.
No roads are closed as of Sunday afternoon and traffic is running mostly normally, said Dylan Rivera, spokesman for the Portland Bureau of Transportation.
The Portland Parks and Recreation Department will handle the clean-up of a small landslide in Sellwood Park.
Rivera said city foresters worked at 65 locations throughout the city on trees and debris that were blown down. Sunday morning, a large tree blocked part of Northwest Cornell Road near Northwest Thompson Road. That was cleared before 1 p.m.
While Portland General Electric is still restoring power to about 4,000 customers, that was a small fraction of the 40,000 who lost it between Thursday and Sunday.
Transportation department crews worked in the days ahead of Thursday's storm to clear storm drains and culverts, which alleviated flooding when the rains hit, Rivera said. He expects remaining debris to be removed this week.
