Beach debris could be Japanese temple gate from 2011 tsunami

OCEANSIDE, Ore. (AP) — More debris that may have come from the Japanese tsunami has been reported at Oceanside Beach.

The Oregonian quotes a resident who spotted the wooden debris, Judson Randall, as saying it may be the top of a Japanese temple gate.

Park rangers hauled away the orange-painted piece of wood after it washed ashore Friday.
