The Columbus Day Storm system brought strong winds to the Pacific Northwest
and southwest Canada. It was linked to 46 fatalities in the northwest and
Northern California resulting from heavy rains and mudslides.

Radio and TV broadcasting was affected in the Portland, Oregon area with
downed transmission towers and loss of equipment.

The entire power distribution system had to be rebuilt from the ground up
in much of the area. Some locations did not have power restored for several
weeks.

The Oregon Capitol grounds at Salem, and the state’s college campuses,
resembled battlefields with heavy losses of trees.
