    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.
