Sherwood escapes much of storm's wrath

by: RAY PITZ - Synder Park's soccer field was a wet mess Monday as rains pounded the area. Besides a few clogged catch basins, Sherwood appeared to have escaped without major incidents or damage during Tuesday's storm.

However, it was clear from the flooded soccer field in Synder park that no evening games would be played.

Just in time for Thanksgiving Day, Mother Nature is throwing a lot of wind, rain and some flooding our way.

The hazardous weather advisory continues through Monday evening, according to the weather service.

Early Monday, the storm pounded the northern Oregon Coast, leaving 20,000 Pacific Power customers without electricity in Astoria, Seaside, Cannon Beach and several nearby communities.

Pacific Power is sending crews and equipment to help restoration efforts in the more hard-hit areas.

Winds along the Oregon Coast are expected to reach 70 mph in some areas. The southern and mid-Willamette Valley could see winds gusting to about 55 mph.

The National Weather service forecasts that heavy rain will fall throughout most of Monday, with winds gusting to 45 mph. Nearly two inches of rain is expected. The wind dies down a bit Monday night, but the heavy rain will continue.

By Tuesday, the region could expect scattered thunderstorms in the afternoon.
