FILE - In this undated photo provided by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Justin Ainsworth, Oregon DFW biologist, inspects a boat that washed up on Gleneden Beach, Ore. Scientists say the 30-foot boat that washed ashore on the central Oregon coast appears to be debris from the March 2011 Japan tsunami. The five West Coast states affected by debris from the 2011 tsunami in Japan are about to receive an initial $250,000 each from a $5 million gift from Japan for cleanup. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is distributing the money to Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon and Washington and will allocate the remainder as additional needs arise (AP Photo/Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, File)
