City of Rogue River continues storm clean up

Rogue River, Ore — Picking up the debris and turning the power back on is the priority in Rogue River.

The last week of wild weather swelled the banks of the Rogue River, causing water to pool on some of the main roads and canceling classes at Rogue River schools.

Heavy snow brought down branches on cars and power lines with some homeowners on Evans Creek Road still cleaning up the mess.

“Most of the roads are cleared but you can see some of the side streets, parking lots are bad, there’s still things to deal with,” said City Administrator Mark Reagles.

“Everybody lost power, we lost power for about 24 hours, gotta give these guys credit, they were on top of it,” said Rogue River resident Mike Kotrba.

Rogue River administrators say the priority is keeping residents safe and getting the power back on as soon as possible.
