Several sites had wind gusts above 100 mph, including 114 mph at Naselle Ridge on the southwest Washington Coast (sustained winds reached 77 mph).

But even sites near sea level got blasted. Much of the southwest Washington coast and Oregon coast had wind gusts to 60-80 mph with extensive power outages and damage.
A trucker decided to cross the Columbia River bridge near Astoria near the peak of the wind event (around 10 AM this morning)....and he didn't make it:
