Breaking News from Local Organizations
Portland/Vanc/Salem Emergency Info for Mon. Dec. 9 - 3:40 am
Breaking news from local organizations.
PGE - As of 6 p.m. Sunday, PGE crews have successfully energized a portion of the downtown network affected by today's power outage, restoring power to customers north of SW Alder St. between 4th Avenue and Broadway. Other affected buildings in a nine-block area south of SW Alder on SW 4th and SW 5th avenues, including Portland City Hall, the Portland Building, and the Multnomah County Courthouse will remain without power Monday as crews continue to repair damage caused by this morning's underground cable failure and vault fire. See map of the affected area at http://bit.ly/1cjKVfJ. Also affected are traffic signals in the area. Drivers and pedestrians should treat affected signals as four-way stop intersections, and exercise special care with reduced visibility in the evening hours and during tomorrow morning's commute. The outage continues to affect the MAX Green and Yellow lines in the area as well. MAX trains are roughly the length of a city block and must stop at every intersection before they can proceed. Drivers should be alert to the change in MAX operations. Riders will continue to experience delays until all power is restored. Only a nine-block portion of the downtown core area remains affected, and the outage does not extend outside that core area. Holiday shoppers and other visitors are encouraged to check directly with retailers and other businesses to verify their status. People who work in the downtown core area should consult with their employer to determine whether their workday will be affected on Monday. PGE crews will continue to work through the night and until all repairs are complete, and are focused on restoring power as quickly as safety allows. PGE will provide updates as more information becomes available on Monday, and appreciates customers' and the public's patience as crews continue their restoration efforts. UPDATE
Multnomah Co. Circuit Court - The Multnomah County Courthouse, the downtown courthouse at 1021 SW Fourth Avenue, will be without electrical power on December 9, 2013. All trials, hearings and other proceedings scheduled to begin in the Multnomah Courthouse on December 9 are canceled and will be rescheduled by the court. The courthouse will reopen for business on December 10, 2013. Continuing trials should contact the office of the Presiding Judge to determine if there is an alternate location for those proceedings on Monday. Jurors summoned to the downtown courthouse to report for jury service on December 9 need to report for service on. Tuesday morning December 10, 2013 All court proceedings set in the Justice Center, in the Juvenile Justice Complex and in the East County Courthouse will proceed as scheduled on Monday, December 9. Only the downtown courthouse on Fourth Avenue in Portland is affected by the emergency cancellation of court hearings and proceedings. UPDATE
