Residents in Coos County dealing with power outages and storm debris
COOS COUNTY, Ore. - In Coos County, residents are still dealing with power outages after a powerful storm.
Pacific Power told us trees, causing extensive damage, were to blame for most of the problems. Today, it's a different story.
Coos County Emergency Management in Coquille tells us river levels are not close to flood level, but people should always be ready for a big storm.
"Have some basic supplies on hand: food, water, medicines, things, so you don't have to have to go out in it,” said Michael Murphy, with Coos County Emergency Management. “If you just wait a little while, the storm goes away and you got a sunny day like we got right now."
Murphy says if you do get stuck in a storm, stay away from downed power lines, stay with your vehicle unless it's in danger, and report fallen trees.
