The high school in the Japanese coastal town of Rikuzentakata was completely destroyed following the tsunami of 2011, along with 80% of the buildings in the city. Now, however, they may get their lost boat back, thanks to Facebook.

The Humboldt State University Redwood Coast Tsunami Work Group positively identified the boat used by Takata High School's marine science program after it washed upin Crescent City, California.
