Now here are some positive points,,,,
No one knows how much of the remaining 1.5 million tons of debris is still floating in the Pacific Ocean.
U.S. and state officials say that some items washing ashore may be from the disaster
Our models show the outer edge of the debris is at the West Coast and Alaska now," Nancy Wallace, program director and division chief of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Marine Debris Program, said Wednesday
Officials can't rule out they came from the tsunami,
a beach cleanup this weekend along the Washington coast said she found items that appeared to include Japanese writing, according to CNN Seattle
affiliate KING. That doesn't prove they were part of the tsunami debris, officials caution.
NOAA said there is no current "debris field."
The top concern is whether radioactive material from the Fukushima nuclear power plant will make landfall.
NOAA has said that scenario is highly unlikely.
"We do not expect to see anything to wash up from Japan with elevated levels of radiation," said Church. "At the same time, we fully appreciate the
concern of people. If you spend a lot of time on the coast, if you see the news coverage, you want to see you are safe."
Now YOU decide,,
