Back to Brookings

The tsunami from Japan’s Tohoku Earthquake traveled thousands of miles and ended up affecting the Oregon Coast as well. I’m not sure if all of this driftwood was moved by the recent tsunami or not, but it did seem like more, and more recently arranged, than what one normally sees on the Oregon Coast.

Brookings was evacuated for the tsunami so the lady who rented us the place (right on the ocean but about 70 feet above it at high tide) couldn’t tell us exactly what it was like. She said they came back immediately after the forced evacuation time ended to watch the ocean come in and then out in massive movements like they hadn’t seen before. We were able to witness similar phenomena, on a much smaller scale, when the tides changed. The tsunami, even 5,000 miles from its origin, must have been spectacular.
