The Washington Department of Transportation issued this alert:

I-84, one of the primary east-west routes through northern Oregon, is closed near the Umatilla Indian Reservation due to blowing and drifting snow. This cannot be used as an alternate route for the Snoqualmie Pass closure at this time.

It is unknown when the highway will reopen.
