Bend Bulletin - Power, water and heat have been restored for the condominium community at Seventh Mountain Resort after seven trees were damaged by high winds on Wednesday.
Crews worked into the night on Wednesday to restore the heat after a mature pine tree uprooted, cracking hot water pipes and gas lines, said Maureen Radon, Seventh Mountain Resort homeowners association community manager.
“We were lucky that all of them missed cars, people and buildings,” Radon said.
The National Weather Service issued a high wind warning from midnight to 1 p.m. Wednesday. Winds of 20 mph to 40 mph were reported, and gusts up to 60 mph occurred near Sisters and Sunriver. Damage was reported to homes in Sunriver, said Jessica Stockel, Aperion Management Group marketing consultant.
Trees feel into homes, on the golf course and across West Core Road, Nestpine Drive and Bittern Lane, Stockel said. In all, five buildings at Fairway Village were damaged, two homes in Eaglewood and three structures at Quelah, she said.
The Seventh Mountain Resort west of Bend dealt not only with fallen trees from Wednesday's windstorm - one large tree also ripped out the pipes for gas, water and electric, prompting a big effort by contractors to make fast repairs.
