More Possible Tsunami Debris Found Along Washington Coast

January 31, 2013

Another large piece of debris has washed ashore along the Washington coast in Pacific County that may be from the tsunami. This time, it is a large cylinder over 19’ long and 3’ in diameter.

A spokeswoman for the Washington Marine Debris Task Force, Virginia Painter, says that any official determination is unlikely because there are no markings.

The cylinder looks like a long pipe with end caps.

A park ranger found the debris this week on Long Beach. Painter says it will be removed.

The state Fish and Wildlife Department is checking for any invasive species in the seaweed clinging to the cylinder.
