NEHALEM, Ore. —

 

An elk hunter from Seattle was killed when storm winds blew a tree down onto his tent.

 

Nathan Christensen, 52, was hunting near Nehalem on Oregon's northwest coast Monday.

 

Two hunters in a nearby camp heard the tree snap as winds reached more than 70 miles an hour.

 

They tried to cut the tree away to rescue Christensen, but couldn't save him.
