Oil from a sunken Japanese vessel that has fouled more than 50 miles of Washington coastline coated Oregon's northernmost beaches Wednesday with mats five to 10 feet long. "It's continuing to accumulate with the tide," said Richard Walkoski, district manager for the state Parks Department. The oil, leaking in Canadian waters off the northwest tip of Washington state, has been moving south since the fish-processing ship Tenyo Maru sank in a collision on July 22.
