From Japan to the USA.- A 20-meter long dock swept away by the huge waves provoked as a consequence of the tsunami that took place in Japan last 2011 has reached the state of Oregon on the West Coast of the United States, some 8,000 kilometres away from its original location.
The 165-tonne structure made of concrete, metal and tyres, reached the coast of Portland a couple of days ago after fifteen months. It is believed that the dock came from the port of Misawa in the North of Japan.
At the moment the Oregon police are guarding the dock while tests on radiation, so far negative, are being developed.
