WESTPORT, WASH. (AP) - Officials are monitoring a large piece of possible tsunami debris that appears to be a barge about 25 miles off Washington state’s coast.
Wallace says the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has been tracking the debris moving along the coast near Westport, Wash., for about a week. Officials don’t when or where it might wash ashore.
Other pieces of tsunami debris that have hit North America’s shores include boats, soccer balls and a shipping container holding a Harley-Davidson motorcycle. In June, a 66-foot dock ripped loose by the big waves landed on Agate Beach near Newport, Ore.
