Tree collapse damages NW restaurant, knocks out power
Power was expected to be restored to more than 200 PGE customers Friday morning after a tree collapsed onto a Northwest Portland restaurant and several cars parked around it.
KOIN Local 6 reported that the tree broke apart at about 6:45 a.m., Friday, May 24, near Northwest 21st Avenue and Irving Street, bringing down heavy branches on the entrance to the Gypsy Restaurant and at least five cars. No one was injured in the incident.
Northwest 21st Avenue was closed from Hoyt to Irving streets while crews cleared the tree from the road.
PGE reported that power could be restored to customers in the area by late morning.
