Dustin Douglas Weber Found in Oregon after Tsunami Death
Dustin Douglas Weber: Killed in March 11 Tsunami, Found in Oregon
The body of Dustin Douglas Weber, who was swept out to sea by the March 11 tsunami that traveled to the west coast of the US from Japan, has been found.
Dustin Weber had been swept to sea near the mouth of the Klamath River in Del Norte County, California, and was found washed ashore in Oregon's Fort Stevens State Park on April 2. He was identified by his dental records.
Dustin Weber had only recently moved to the coast from his hometown of Bend, Oregon, starting a brand-new life after struggling with drug addiction.
His was the first death of a person on the West Coast by a tsunami since 1964, when 11 people in nearby Crescent City died from the surge created by an earthquake in Alaska.
