Good Morning Marion County, long post ahead but we want to try and be as helpful as possible with the limited information we have available to us.

We are fielding a lot of questions about what city’s have gas stations and grocery stores open along with if we know what parts of town have power.

We have reached out to all of our police departments we dispatch for and here is a very BASIC list of what is available to you. Keep in mind this is NOT an all inclusive list, just what’s been noticed by your police departments as they are out patrolling. We will not be able to provide more specific information regarding businesses that are open or more specific areas that have power or roads that are still closed. That being said, we hope you find this information useful!

Below list is as of 2/16/2021 @ 8:00AM

City of Aumsville:
⛽️ 🍟 The Chevron station/mini store is open along with Figaro’s.
💡 8th street going west and Main Street til Olney which has power North to South.

Other things to know:

📱 ☎️ Cell phone and land line phones continue to have problems. If you cannot connect with 911 please respond direct to your nearest police or fire department.

🌳 🪚 Public works departments & power crews continue to work hard clearing roads and power lines. We cannot thank them enough for all of their hard work.

Remember if you have traffic lights out at an intersection treat it as a 4 way stop. This is also causing some areas to back up, so you’re travel time may increase.

Please do not call 911 or our non-emergent lines to inquire about power restoration. Seek alternate resources such as PGE’s website or customer service phone number for outages.

PGE 800-544-1795 or https://portlandgeneral.com/outages/
