Improvements Needed In Multnomah County's Storm Response

(Portland, OR) -- Multnomah County has several areas for improvement following January's extreme cold and ice storm. Four people died from the cold, three people died from fallen power lines and one person was killed by a falling tree. Shelters set a record for use. An after-action report recommends planning for longer shelter operations, year-round training for a storm response, fewer but larger shelters, and security personnel at shelters. The county will also work to coordinate its response with Portland and other partners.
