Tsunami Dock Piece in Museum

 

A piece of the Japanese tsunami dock that washed up in Oregon will go on permanent display at the Hatfield Marine Science Center.  Visitor Center Manager Mark Farley says part of the exhibit will focus on the area off the Oregon coast that will cause an earthquake here.  They know that, because there's a long history of strong earthquakes and tsunamis that hit the coast.  The exhibit will also point out evacuation routes from the area near the Marine Science Center.  They want it to serve as a reminder whenever you visit the coast to know how to get to higher ground quickly when there's an earthquake.
