A powerful storm moved into the Pacific Northwest this weekend, bringing damaging winds that left roadways blocked and thousands without electricity.
The storm system can be traced back to what was once Super Typhoon Songda in the western Pacific Ocean; however, by the time that it reached the Northwest it had lost all of its tropical characteristics.
"The worst conditions occurred Saturday into Saturday night across the Pacific Northwest with coastal wind gusts that reached as high as 100 mph," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Brian Edwards said.
These hurricane-force wind gusts left more than 30,000 without power on Saturday night across Washington and Oregon.
Utility crews have worked to reduce the number of outages across the region, but some people may remain without power until early this week.
Not only did the storm bring damaging winds, but also flooding rain. The heaviest rain fell in western parts of Washington and Oregon with some areas of southwest Oregon picking up over three inches of rain from Saturday through Sunday.
This torrential rain lead to at least four mudslides in the Chelan, Washington are on Saturday night, according to the Chelan County Sheriff's Office.
Snow also fell across the Cascade Mountain Range with totals topping six inches on some of the higher elevations.
There have not been any reports of major injuries or fatalities due to the storm.
