Oregon houseboat floats to Washington in wind storm

Oregon houseboat floats away

A Pacific Northwest windstorm was so powerful, it caused a houseboat moored on the Oregon side of the Columbia River to break loose and float to the Washington state side.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office tweeted Friday that nobody was inside when the home broke free from a marina in the 3300 block of NE Marine Drive, which appears to be near Troutdale.

The owner was working with a contractor to re-secure the house.
