Clackamas County Opens Storm Resource Centers

CLACKAMAS, Ore. — With tens of thousands of homes and businesses in Clackamas County without power for several days, the county has opened up three storm resource centers for people to warm up, charge their devices and get supplies.

Clackamas County Board Chair Tootie Smith says their communications systems were down for three days.  The jail and 911 center relied on back-up generators to keep them powered.  Electricity has since been restored along with the courthouse.  She says the tri-city sewer treatment plant was assigned priority so that toilets did not back-up into people’s homes and the rivers.

18 snow plows are in service throughout the county and crews are working 24/7.

Staff have delivered batteries, food and water to home-bound residents.  Chair Smith is asking folks to check on their neighbors.

The county does plan to open more centers.  Centers are open now at:
