PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Authorities say a 67-year-old Oregon man was killed when he was struck by a tree limb.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office says a neighbor found Ronald Kibert of Tigard under the large limb Friday morning. The neighbors performed CPR until paramedics arrived, but Kibert was pronounced dead at OHSU hospital.

The sheriff’s office says Kibert liked to take walks in the area where the tree fell. Winds gusts of 60 mph were reported in the Portland area Friday, sending trees into homes, streets and power lines.
