The tsunami in Japan created 22 million tons of debris. This ghost ship just appeared (one year later) near Canada.
The ghost ship marks the first large sign of debris from post-tsunami Japan. Previously, Japanese bottles and other knick knacks have reached North America’s shore, but with officials estimating nearly two million tons of debris to survive the entire trek across the ocean, it won’t be at all surprising to see other items pop up in North America. In fact, officials are fully expecting to find more ghost ships like this too.
