Tsunami debris in America worse than expected

March 18, 2013


Tsunami debris set for N. America to rise

A total of 221,000 tons of debris from the tsunami that hit Japan on March 11, 2011, is expected to wash up on the western coast of North America by October, the Environment Ministry said.

The cumulative volume of such debris reaching the Pacific coast of North America is likely to reach 30,000 tons by April and increase gradually until October, the ministry said Friday.

The ministry's previous estimates suggested the volume would increase substantially from December, with 33,000 tons expected by June.
