Northwest Beaches Seeing Spike in Debris

Northwest Beaches Seeing Spike in Debris

A recent report has uncovered that there has been a spike in debris in Northwest beaches. The remains are somewhat like tsunami-related.

On Wednesday, the Washington State Marine Debris Task Force expounded that the spike noted in marine debris has been resulting in leaving extra trash cans on a number of beaches. The debris comprise of plastic bottles, Styrofoamm, floats and many other objects that are portable.

The spike in the remains had been forecasted in federal agency models where nearly 5 million tons of debris that was swilled out to sea in March 2011 Japan Tsunami is to settle.

It is being said that the items lately reaching state beaches are unknown for if they are connected to the March 11, 2011 tsunami, which had caused the devastation of Japan. But, probably, a part of the debris, which washed out into the Pacific Ocean is reaching U. S. and Canadian shores.

Surfside north of Long Beach, the city of Long Beach's Bolstad Beach and Grayland Beach State Park near Westport have all seen extra trash bins being placed.

"While many of these debris objects may fit the profile of tsunami debris, only a few can be traced back to the disaster with 100% certainty based on a clear fingerprint", affirmed the agency.
