One lane on the main highway connecting Washington and Oregon was reopened Thursday evening after it was closed due to a major landslide.

The landslide which covered Highway 30 just south of the St. Johns Bridge in Portland was caused by heavy rains brought by a major Northwest storm.

The storms have caused rivers to burst their banks and roads to close.

At least two people were killed in the Pacific Northwest due to the storm.

The National Weather Service also was checking reports of a possible tornado touching down in southwest Washington on Thursday.
