Portland Oregon is under a storm siege.

Thunder and lightning strikes have taken a toll.

A teenager was struck by lightning at his school and is in the hospital in
guarded condition.  He's expected to make a full recovery.

Trees are down all over the place, on top of houses and across roads.

A woman on her way to the airport was hit by a falling tree as she drove on
the freeway.  She missed her flight but lives to tell the tale.

Thousands of customers, as many as 55,000, are in the dark thanks to downed
power lines.  Crews are working around the clock to restore power.

Massive rains and clogged storm drains have caused flooding in urban areas.
