Over a million ton of wreckage form Japan’s can flush up on the shores of California and Alaska.
Wreckage from Japan’s tsunami – fishing gear and furniture, footballs and ships – has swept across the Pacific far faster than expected, with thousands of tonnes projected to land on North American shores this year.
Scientists believe lighter objects such as buoys and oil drums began reaching land last November or December. The rest is spread over thousands of miles of ocean between the Midway atoll and the northern islands of Hawaii.
About 95 per cent will probably never come ashore and is destined for that massive swirl of floating plastic known as the north Pacific garbage patch. The remaining fraction is due to reach the west coast of the US and Canada in October.
But there have already been some bizarre finds. This week a beachcomber in British Columbia found a moving crate containing a rusting Harley-Davidson motorcycle registered to Japan’s Miyagi prefecture, which absorbed the brunt of the tsunami. The crate also contained a set of golf clubs.
Japanese government estimates 4.8m tonnes of debris – parts of factorybuildings, houses, cars and trees – were swept into the ocean during the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
Heavy items sank to the ocean floor close to shore. But at least 1.5m tonnes of debris, including small ships, lumber, and even steel beams was carried off by currents and began making the 4,500-mile journey across the Pacific

Man is a fool. And we all sail on the same ship of fools.
When man pollutes God’s creation, he harms him self and his children. It is like man is pissing in his own pants.
So God created the great creatures of the sea and every living and moving thing with which the water teems, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good.
The Bible explains that life in the sea shall not only face tsunami. Sea life is approaching a under water man made “holocaust”.
a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.
The only solution to this fruits of the darkness of mankind, is Jesus the Messiah. Heaven and earth till pass away, but His Words are eternal.
