Ice Storm Updates


Central Lincoln PUD reports their crews have made significant progress in northern Newport up the coast to Gleneden Beach. They have been able to pick up many large areas of Newport, Depoe Bay, and Lincoln Beach. However, not everyone has been restored. There will be several smaller pockets within the restored areas that do not have power. This is because they’re fed from different lines and crews will need to patrol those lines and address issues before energizing.


Power has been restored to the Agate Beach substation. This impacts the service area

generally north of NW 15 street. There are still local outages throughout the City and PUD

service areas. The extent of problems from downed distribution limes will be known as

service is brought up to customers in those locations. Injuries: To date, 1 person taken to hospital because of tree falling on homeless camp and multiple injuries have been reported due to downed trees.


Property Damage: Substantial Public and Private damage has occurred due to down trees and loss of power. Trees have landed on buildings, vehicles, and power lines. Businesses have closed due to both downed trees and loss of power and employee safety. Please minimize travel during winter storms. Trees and broken branches will continue to fall after the storm so use caution around trees and avoid all downed power lines.


Oceanview Assisted Living has been without power since Saturday, and has made alternative location arrangements for residents. The Newport Police have created an inventory of problem areas, and Newport Public Works is continuing to remove debris from streets. The City has contracted with Oregon Coast Tree Company to assist with cleanup of street areas/debris removal.


Newport Wastewater Collection crews are monitoring and servicing wastewater lift stations, in those areas without power. Power has been restored to the Newport Water Treatment plant remains operable, and various water pressure booster stations are on standby power. The City has had discussions with Thompson Sanitation regarding a woody debris collection site which would allow drop off woody debris at no cost to residents. It is expected more information will be forthcoming later this week. Please contact the Newport Public Works Department after hours dispatch number at 541-265-4231 to report and water, sewer, or street issues.
