Debris possibly from Japanese tsunami floating up Strait of Juan de Fuca–PDN

It is worth noting that there was a nuclear power meltdown during this, and that anything coming from there could be radioactive. It would certainly argue for caution in touching anything found. –Ed

DUNGENESS — Debris apparently from the March 2011 Japanese tsunami is now riding the tides up the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
The biggest collection of fishing floats — many bearing Asian writing and logos — has been found on Dungeness Spit, which juts into the Strait north of Sequim, said Dave Falzetti, refuge officer for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, which oversees the lengthy spit.
“We’ve never seen anything like these before,” he said.
