Storm: Travel could become treacherous as snow, rain persist


PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A man in northwest Washington was stuck and killed by a snowplow and authorities urged people not to travel in some areas of Washington and Oregon as winter storms continue throughout the region. Parts of several major highways in Oregon finally reopened Wednesday after snow from a blizzard earlier this week was compounded by fresh snowfall. Interstate 84 closed part of Wednesday east of Pendleton and snow drifts were still making road conditions difficult in Walla Walla County. In northwest Washington, a man walking along a highway was killed when a snowplow hit him Tuesday. Authorities urged people to delay trips over Snoqualmie Pass on Interstate 90 and other mountain passes as heavy snow was expected into Thursday.
