Body of North Coast Tsunami Victim Found
The body of Dustin Douglas Weber, the only victim of the Tsunami that hit the north coast a month ago, has been found near the mouth of the Columbia river in Oregon, 300 miles north of where Weber was during the tsunami.
The Oregon state medical examiner says a person walking on the beach back on April 2nd found the body. Today, the examiner was able to positively identify the body as 25 year old Dustin Weber.
Weber had gone down to the beach with friends near the mouth of the Klamath River on March 11th, to take pictures of the surge. Authorities say that’s when Weber and 2 of his friends were pulled out to see. His friends were able to make it to shore but, after an exhaustive search by the Coast Guard, Dustin Weber was still missing.
Family members say Weber had just moved from
bend to Requa, CA to fix up a house given to him
by his grandmother.
