Japan Tsunami Debris On Way To Hawaii
A Russian ship passing the Midway islands on September 22nd picked up a fishing boat. It had the word “Fukushima” on it.
The Russian ship had run into a debris field. Furniture, appliances and anything else that could float were found amongst the aforementioned fishing boat.
Researchers believe the debris field to harbor 5 to 20 million tons of debris.
The debris field was not expected to hit Midway this soon. It was predicted to take at least another year. This also bumps up the prediction for when the field will hit Hawaii. The debris is expected to hit the west side of the islands in two years.
