PORTLAND, Ore. — Tens of thousands of people still do not have internet following the weekend snow and ice storm in Oregon, and Comcast says it could take a few weeks for some people to get back online.

At the peak of the damage, Comcast spokesperson Amy Keiter said more than 200,000 customers lost internet service. That was down to about 76,000 customers Wednesday morning, with the number shrinking as crews made repairs. CenturyLink and Ziply Fiber also reported service interruptions.
