Tsunami Dock
On Thursday, Jan. 3, 2012, a six-person crew traversed more than 3 miles of old logging roads, climbed over downed logs, forded a creek and trekked down wave-swept shorelines to reach a dock that is believed to be debris from the March 2011 tsunami in Japan. The dock washed ashore near Forks, Washington on Dec. 18 and is being checked for invasive species. Once that is done, officials will work on a plan to remove the dock from the coastline.
