A large dock is washed ashore off Newport, Oregon's Agate Beach on Tuesday, June 5, 2012. State parks officials say a metal plate with Japanese writing has been found attached to the dock, raising speculation it might be debris from last year's tsunami in Japan. Oregon parks spokesman Chris Havel said Wednesday a photo of the plate was emailed to the Japanese consulate in Seattle for review. (AP Photo/The Oregonian, Lori Tobias) less
