Debris to Hit US Sooner Than Expected"
NEW YORK (WLS) - The devastating tsunami that hit Japan in March
created lasting images of houses, boats, cars and entire
neighborhoods pulled out to sea. It also caused a massive sea of
debris -- up to 20 million tons of it, all of it potentially
toxic -- in an area estimated to be twice the size of Texas.
Now, seven months later, that floating debris is on a direct
collision course with the Pacific Coast of the United States --
and it might be coming sooner than expected.
