Tsunami Debris Dock
FILE -- This Thursday, Jan. 3, 2013 photo provided by Olympic National Park shows a dock that washed ashore on a wilderness beach near Forks, Wash. Workers are waiting in Forks for better weather to start removing the 65-foot long dock that washed ashore on the Washington coast from the Japanese tsunami. A spokeswoman for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Keeley Belva, said Friday, March 15, 2013, that work could start over the weekend if weather, tides and safety considerations are favorable. The dock made of plastic foam encased in concrete is on a remote beach within the boundaries of Olympic National Park and the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. The Undersea Co. of Port Townsend will dismantle the 185-ton dock into pieces that can be carried away by a helicopter. (AP Photo/Olympic National Park, File)
