Another huge piece of dock dislodged by the earthquake-generated tsunami that inundated Japan in March 2011 beached itself on a Pacific Northwest shore. The dock piece – one of four carried out to sea by the tsunami – lodged itself in a remote section of wilderness beach near Forks, Washington, in what is part of the Olympic National Park. NOAA officials say it’s a reminder of what lies ahead: the likelihood of much more debris appearing in the offshore waters and reaching the shores of Washington and Oregon in 2013 and beyond.
