Storm closes zoo, libraries, parks facilities

The list of public closures grew as the storm worsened during the weekend.

By Saturday morning, the Oregon Zoo had decided to close. So had all Portland Parks & Recreation community centers and pools for both Saturday and Sunday. And so had all libraries in Multnomah and Washington counties.

The weather is expected to worsen over Saturday, with freezing rain predicted by Saturday afternoon. Public officials are urging everyone to stay home and off the roads if possible. Call ahead if venturing out to make sure your destination is open.
