5 Car Crashes Per Hour Reported In Portland Amid Snowy Weather

What is now being referred to as the Portland Snowpocalypse, this week’s snow storm has caused nothing short of complete chaos. With most schools, businesses and government buildings closed for the latter half of this week and thousands of cars abandoned on our streets, things have been quite a mess over the past 24 hours… to say the least. With unprepared residents and slick roads that are spinning vehicle out of control, the rise in car crashes since Wednesday afternoon has been overwhelming.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
