The Latest: Trees, power lines come down in Northwest storm
PORTLAND, Ore. — The Latest on a powerful windstorm in the Northwest (all times local):
A windstorm bearing remnants of a Pacific typhoon is reaching the Seattle area after leaving a swath of downed trees and powerlines in Oregon and southwest Washington.
The National Weather Service said gusts around Seattle would probably top out at about 50 mph, weaker than initially feared, but still strong enough to do some damage. The Washington Department of Transportation said trees came down on Interstate 5 near Olympia, blocking the right lane.
