Tons of Japan Tsunami Debris Heading Toward U.S. [VIDEO]
We all remember the the 9.1 magnitude Earthquake and the resulting Tsunami that ravaged Japan 11 months ago. Now it appears the wrecked cars, portions of homes, boats, furniture all swept up in the Tsunami are now on a slow-motion collision course with California.
Jim Churnside, a physicist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency’s (NOAA) Marine Debris Program, told FoxNews.com that no one’s tracking the debris.
After the tsunami, the debris was closely clumped together,” Churnside told FoxNews.com. “After storms and over time, those [clumps] kind of get broken up. I don’t think there’s going to be much that’s visible from satellites right now.
Some experts have stated that they would not be surprised to see some fishing vessels by April, and the main mass of debris start arriving about a year from now.
