In this Aug. 29, 2012 photo, Mary Johnson, the general manager at Washed Ashore, shows a piece of foam-like material that may be insulation and tsunami debris in Bandon, Ore. In early June, a big dock splashed ashore in Oregon, confirming everyone's suspicion: Tsunami debris had arrived. Now, officials say, the worst is yet to come. Winter storms always drive piles of ocean trash onto Oregon's beaches. This year, they will carry debris from the 2010 Japanese tsunami.
