https://twitter.com/MultCoSO/status/1349370886306942977 Heavy rain was too much for the landscape of northwest Oregon to handle, as landslides overnight near Dodson, Oregon caused serious damage. The city is located right along the Hood River, with parts of Interstate 84 impacted in the slide. The National Weather Service in Portland, OR issued a Flash Flood Warning after "Heavy rain overnight has led to landslides that are threatening homes near MP35 along Interstate 84 near Dodson, Oregon. Multnomah County Emergency Management urges residents to leave the area immediately. This is a life threatening situation." Evacuees were told to go to a local hotel for emergency shelter. The eastbound lanes of I-84 in the Troutdale area were closed and the situation was deemed "too dangerous to send in rescue crews." https://twitter.com/NWSPortland/status/1349347341275340803 This wasn't the only landslide from Tuesday night's storms. Highway 219 in Scholls was also closed after a slide covered the road. In Clackamas County, Oregon, officials documented downed trees and powerlines shutting down multiple roadways. On Wednesday morning, more than a half million customers were without power in Washington State. https://twitter.com/ClackCoSheriff/status/1349368132360552449 All throughout Washington and Oregon, drivers are urged to use extreme caution as debris and power outages are making for dangerous travel. https://twitter.com/NWSSeattle/status/1349366266839003137
