CANNON BEACH, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A major storm system that is pummeling the entire West Coast is taking aim at most of Oregon.

But those along the coast of Oregon have been through many storm before and know how to prepare for and handle them.

Watch this video report from KOIN 6 Photojournalist Ty Nguyen.

The National Weather Service has upgraded the High Wind Watch to a High Wind Warning for the valley, including the Portland/Vancouver area.

Models are now in agreement that an area of deep low pressure will approach the coast Thursday between the hours of 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Models are indicating that the center of the storm will travel north just off the coast at a very fast pace through the late morning and afternoon hours Thursday.
