ASTORIA, Ore. – The Oregon Coast was pelted with heavy rain and winds over the weekend, but no widespread power outages or major damages were reported.

The fierce storm knocked over the “Welcome to Astoria” sign as the city saw wind gusts up to 60 mph Sunday.

The winds also toppled several trees along the north and central coast.

Drivers on Highway 101 had to pull over in the middle of the storm due to extremely limited visibility.
