* Impacts... this is expected to be yet another major ice storm
for the western and central Columbia Gorge and surrounding
valleys. Heavy ice accumulation will likely bring down some
large branches and power lines. Power outages may last multiple
days depending on how widespread these impacts are. This event
will only add to the existing heavy snow and ice loading on
rooftops... which may cause some rooftops to fail.

expected or occurring. Significant amounts of ice accumulations
will make travel dangerous or impossible. Travel is strongly
discouraged. Commerce will likely be severely impacted. If you
must travel... keep an extra flashlight... food... and water in your
vehicle in case of an emergency. Ice accumulations and winds will
likely lead to snapped power lines and falling tree branches that
add to the danger.
