Japanese dock lands on Oregon beach

“A massive dock” that was washed away from a city on Japan’s northeast coast by the devastating March 2011 tsunami landed this week on an Oregon beach. It’s a warning sign that dangerous chunks of debris from that disaster are reaching the Pacific coast of the mainland U.S. much sooner than predicted, The Oregonian reports.

“The Yonaguni Monument is a massive underwater rock formation off the coast of Yonaguni, the southernmost of the Ryukyu Islands, in Japan. There is a debate about whether the site is completely natural, is a natural site that has been modified, or is a manmade artifact.[1][2]  The site is variably referred to as the “Yonaguni Underwater Formations” (与那国島海底地形, Yonaguni-jima Kaitei Chikei?) and the “Yonaguni Underwater Ruins” (与那国島海底遺跡, Yonaguni-jima Kaitei Iseki?) in Japanese.” (from Wikipedia)
