More suspected tsunami debris on Washington coast
LONGVIEW, Wash. — More debris swept away in the Japanese tsunami a year ago is apparently washing ashore on Washington's Long Beach Peninsula.
Jerry Dean of Longview found several kinds of floats this month — a clear glass float and net, a yellow plastic float and several larger dark floats.
Dean and friend Russ Bryant also found four large light bulbs — some marked with Japanese writing — as well as assorted bottles and jars.
Earlier this year several large floats of the type used at Japanese oyster farms were found on the Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island.
The Daily News reports the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is urging beachcombers to report unusual finds to Marinedebris(at)noaa.gov. The information will be used to update computer models about jetsam.
