Hood River County Public Works crew cleans up the fallen oak on Mason Road in Pine Grove on June 27. Ty Erickson runs the front-loader, assisted by Travis Tremblay, foreground, with chainsaw, and Jordan Lee, cleaning up debris. The oak, 50 feet tall and four-feet wide at its base, knocked over two poles and pulled down lines, causing a brief outage affecting about 50 Hood River Electric Co-op customers. High winds and rain hit suddenly on The night of June 26, also knocking out poles and wires on Stadelman Drive in Odell.
