6. A Japanese Dock
This piece of debris happened to be part of a Japanese dock that was torn from its moorings during the tsunami and washed up on the shores of Oregon and brought back what researchers believe to be about 100 tons of sea life. Scientists from the Oregon State University state that the 66-foot-long deck has around 13 pounds of organisms per square foot. The dock did not show any signs of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown caused by the tsunami, but it did pose the threat of carrying invasive species. What that means is that these creatures that aren’t natives to the area could potentially throw the local ecosystems out of whack and cause irreparable damage to the native wildlife, such as the dread zebra mussel.
5. A Mystery Creature
There have been some unusual things that have washed up on random shores after tsunamis, this being one of them. After the 2011 tsunami hit, this giant white mass had been washed out onto the shore of Japan and had many of the locals, along with everyone who watched this video on YouTube, wondering what it even was? Some thought it to be a brand new creature that had risen from the dark depths of the ocean floor while others speculated it was merely a large rock or boulder. Don’t worry, officials have concluded that this isn’t some new species that’s going to wipe us out. They simply stated that it’s most likely just a mass of whale blubber from the carcass of a dead whale that’s pretty much unrecognizable.
4. A Shipping Tote
Back in November of 2014, this shipping tote had washed up near the shores of Seal Rock in Oregon. This 4-by-5 foot plastic shipping tote had been floating out at sea for the last 3 years since the tsunami struck and amassed around 200 blue mussels that were attached to it. Like the dock that was found in 2012, this tote was a potential host for carrying invasive species and scientist eventually determined it as a non-threat to the surrounding environment. Still, the amount of debris, the total estimated to be around 18.11 million tons with 70 percent of the debris sinking to the bottom of the ocean, is still rather high and is still washing up years after that tragic event took place.
3. Various Trash
A barge from the fishing town of Ucluelet in British Columbia had carried in around “super sacks” of debris caused by the tsunami. Those sacks are designed to hold up to 1,000 pounds, so you can only imagine how heavy all that weight could possibly be. Ever since the tsunami struck, there have been volunteer pickups in the town where local and Japanese students have gotten involved. They’ve managed to collect all different sorts of garbage such as styrofoam, pieces of Japanese houses, and other debris. Though they’ve made progress, their results haven’t been achieved through smooth sailing. The coastline of Ucluelet is described as remote and rugged which made the cleanups very difficult and the fact that there was already debris unrelated to the tsunami already there makes for even more trash than expected.
2. An Entire Ship
This yacht happened to be discovered in the Iwate Prefecture in Northeastern Japan in the town of Otsuchi nearly two months after the tsunami had hit. The ship weighs in at an incredible 200 tons and it’s a huge surprise that the two-story building that is supporting all that weight is still somehow managing to keep from collapsing. It’s hard to even process the amount of force needed to lift the ship.
1. A House
As one of the most powerful and deadly disasters that can occur in nature, the tsunami is one that leaves devastation in its wake. Their sheer force can only be imagined by those who have never witnessed what it can be capable of at first hand and even then you can never come close to doing it justice. Take for example this house that was a part of the Fukushima debris. This was someone’s entire home where they built a life for themselves around it and in a matter of moments, it was swept off its foundation and carried out into the sea, along with what is estimated to be another 200,000 buildings.
Was NZ Earthquake Man Made? World’s Biggest Seismic “Blast” Ship Was Parked Above Fault

If you were planning to do seismic blasting off the coast of a country, the best time to do it would be with the full moon wouldn’t it? That way people only discuss that as the possible reason for the quake.

Cows left stranded on island in New Zealand earthquake

Three New Zealand cows looked like they could use a little help Monday after an earthquake triggered landslides all around them and left them stranded on a small island of grass.
Footage shows two adult cattle and a calf stuck on a chunk of land in a paddock that had been ripped apart in Monday’s magnitude-7.8 quake. The patch of grass was surrounded by deep ravines of collapsed earth, trapping the animals where they stood.

Tsunami hits New Zealand after powerful 7.8 earthquake November 13, 2016
Veröffentlicht am 13.11.2016
Tsunami hits New Zealand after powerful 7.8 earthquake. A magnitude -7.8 earthquake struck the South Island of New Zealand shortly after midnight on Monday, according to the US Geological Survey. It was initially pegged as a magnitude-7.4 earthquake before being revised.
The quake was centered over land, about 59 miles from Christchurch.
New Zealand’s Ministry of Civil Defense and Emergency Management tweeted that there is a tsunami threat for both the North Island and South Island of New Zealand. It tweeted that the North Island may be hit first, writing, „The tsunami may arrive in the Eastern Coast of the North Island shortly. Move inland or to higher ground immediately.“
A surge of up to one meter was recorded in North Canterbury region of the South Island, Anna Kaiser, a seismologist at GNS Science told Radio New Zealand.
„That’s reasonably significant so people should take this seriously,“ she added.
officials went door to door evacuating residents.

Volcanologists Fear Tenerife Volcano May Erupt After 100 Earthquakes
Veröffentlicht am 06.10.2016
A swell of seismic activity on Tenerife could indicate a long-dormant volcano on the holiday island could be about to blow, with volcanologists warning nearly 100 mini-tremors could signify an upcoming eruption.
Mount Teide, a 3km-high volcano in the south of Tenerife, last erupted in 1909, with an earlier eruption in the 18th Century destroying the town and principal port of Garachico, as well as several smaller villages.
Der japanische Vulkan Aso erzeugte heute bereits 3 Ascheeruptionen. Das VAAC Tokyo gibt bei einer der Eruptionen an, dass die Aschewolke eine Höhe von 39.000 Fuß (13 km) erreicht haben soll.
Der Alarmstatus wurde auf Stufe 3 (von 5) erhöht und eine 2 km Sperrzone um den Krater etabliert. Leider funktionieren die LiveCams derzeit nicht.
Der Vulkan liegt in der Region Kumamoto, die im Frühjahr von einer Serie schwerer Erdbeben heimgesucht wurde. Diese hatte. u.a. zur Folge, dass die Kamerasensoren-Fabriken von Sony mehrere Monate stillstanden.
