Tsunami Dock Exhibit in the Works

NEWPORT, Ore. —¬†Oregon State University and the City of Newport plan to display part of the dock from the Japanese tsunami that washed ashore in early June.

A portion of the dock will be on display at OSU’s Hatfield Marine Science Center by early next year.

The project will be paid for by the City of Newport and donations.

Oregon Sea Grant, which manages the Visitor Center, is developing the exhibit. The group hopes to eventually build an interpretive trail from the OSU center to higher ground along the tsunami evacuation trail.
