Japan’s Tsunami Debris to Hit Coasts of California, Hawaii
“If you live in Hawaii, California, British Columbia, Alaska or Baja California, here is some bad news: According to computer models made by scientists at the International Pacific Research Center, University of Hawaii at Manoa, all the debris washed out by the Japan tsunami is coming your way.
The Debris timeline:
- March 2012: The debris plume approaches the north of Hawaii.
- March 2013: Plume starts reaching the rest of the Hawaiian islands on their way to the West Coast.
- March 2014: The debris cloud will touch the West Coast, dumping trash on California, British Columbia, Alaska and Baja California’s beaches.
- March 2015: By now, the plume will be swimming its way into that shameful spot called the North Pacific Garbage Patch.
- March 2016: Five years after the disaster, another wave of “stronger and longer-lasting” debris will reach Hawaii again.”
