This photo taken Sunday April 7, 2013 and provided by the Del Norte Triplicate shows a 20-foot fishing boat that washed up in Crescent City, Calif. The boat is believed to be the first piece of debris to land on California shores from the 2011 tsunami in Japan. After local law enforcement towed the vessel off the beach, a team from Humboldt State University's Redwood Coast Tsunami Work Group, an interagency group that works to reduce earthquake and tsunami hazards, came to Crescent City to record the Japanese writing on the side of the boat.
