Falling tree near Oregon City injures man sitting at desk

PORTLAND — A Douglas fir tree fell on a home office Wednesday south of Oregon City, and a man who had been sitting at his desk was flown to an emergency room.

The Oregonian reports the windstorm that has lashed the Portland metropolitan area since Tuesday has toppled dozens of trees.

Brandon Paxton, a spokesman for Clackamas County firefighters, says the tree was 3 feet in diameter.

There was no immediate word on the man’s condition, and his name was not immediately released.
