Published:
GLENEDEN, Ore. -- A 27-foot boat that washed up near Gleneden Beach and may be tsunami debris has been taken to a landfill.
State parks officials said the boat resembles debris from the 2011 tsunami in Japan, but they haven't pinpointed the vessel's origin.
It washed ashore Tuesday. A contractor hauled it away Wednesday.
The parks department said state biologists and Oregon State University scientists found specimens such as a non-native Japanese acorn barnacle.
It's expected to be weeks before other organisms are positively identified.
