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.
