FORKS -- Stormy weather Wednesday is keeping officials away from the dock that washed ashore on a remote beach on the Washington Coast.
A spokesman for the state Marine Debris Task Ford, David Workman, says high winds and tides are making it hard to reach the site on the Olympic Peninsula.
Workman says there's no confirmation yet whether the dock is debris from the March 2011 tsunami in Japan. It appears to be similar to a Japanese dock that washed ashore last June at Newport, Ore. It was cut up and removed.
The Coast Guard spotted the latest dock Tuesday on a wilderness beach of the Olympic National Park between La Push and the Hoh River.
