Dock Spotted off Washington

Authorities in Washington are warning mariners of a massive dock that was spotted by a fishing boat on Friday about 16 miles northwest of Grays Harbor. The dock was reported to be about the same size as the 66-ft beast that grounded itself on an Oregon beach in June.

Searches by the Coasties have failed to locate the dock, which is presumed to be debris from the last year’s Japanese earthquake and tsunami. If you spot this or any other significant debris, you’re asked to contact local authorities and report it to NOAA via email. For more info on tsunami debris, check out the website NOAA has set up.
