Grants Pass, Ore., — Storms overnight and in to the morning left trees across roads in Josephine County, and thousands across the region are still without power tonight.

“When it landed, thunk, shot us up against the ceiling. It still ain’t hit yet, it will take a while. All my stuffs in there. I gotta go in and try get it.”

The family wasn’t hurt but now have to stay in a hotel until they can get the trailer fixed.

The road was closed while crews worked quickly to move the tree and restore power to the neighborhood.
