Kauai residents report spike in tsunami debris

By Associated Press

LIHUE, Hawaii (AP) Residents say a new wave of tsunami debris is washing up on Kauai's beaches.

The debris is being monitored by the Surfrider Foundation of Kauai. Carl Berg, the foundation's chairman, told The Garden Island that Surfrider began finding very large, black buoys last summer from Japanese oyster culture rafts.

Now, more large pieces are being found, including pieces from three different refrigerators and a floating dock that have washed up on north and east-facing shores.

Berg says his biggest concern with the new wave of larger debris is the threat it poses for Kauai's reefs, as well as marine life and swimmers.
