Reporter Knocked Down By 100+ Winds

Winds were extremely powerful in the Gorge, reaching 101 mph on Thursday and carrying the continued threat of freezing rain.

Some pedestrians said significant wind gusts blew them sideways in NE Portland early Thursday afternoon and in the Corbett area. KGW Reporter Keely Chalmers was literally blown over while videotaping part of her story for the evening newscasts. She was working at Crown Point, along Historic Highway 30, where winds were recorded at 101 miles an hour.
