Possible tsunami boat washes up on U.S. shore

A 24-foot boat with Japanese writing on it has washed up on a beach north of Florence, Ore., and been removed to a landfill.

The find raises the possibility that it's more debris from the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami. But the state Parks and Recreation Department says it has not been able to determine the boat's origin or date of loss.
