A storm bearing down on the Pacific Northwest has taken the life of an elk hunter on the Oregon Coast and hit the region with mudslides, high winds and mountain snow.

Chief Perry Sherbaugh of Nehalem Bay Fire and Rescue in Oregon says a fir tree crashed on the hunter's tent Monday, killing him instantly. Wind gusts of more than 70 mph have been reported along the coast.

Meanwhile, a mudslide carried a tree into a Washington State Patrol trooper's car and another vehicle, causing both to start burning.

The trooper, who crawled out of his car and escaped uninjured, was able to free the driver of the other car. She was left with a sore neck.

The National Weather Service says more Pacific storms that started rolling across the region over the weekend are expected through Thanksgiving week.
