More Japanese Tsunami Debris Washes Up

GLENEDEN BEACH, Ore. — Scientists closely inspected what appears to be the latest round of Japanese tsunami debris to wash ashore in Oregon.

A boat, washed away during the tsunami that followed the Tohoku earthquake on March 11, 2011, now sits on Gleneden Beach. The 30-foot vessel is hull up and embedded with sand. It appears to be a specialty design for some type of fishing or aquaculture activity.

Scientists say it does not pose a risk for hazmat crews and only a little risk associated with invasive species.
