Tsunami debris slide show.
In his presentation, Ebbesmeyer actually gives a checklist for people who find such items, which includes treating the debris "as a crash scene," checking it for radioactivity (!) and notifying the likely owners in Japan. He also says that U.S. citizens should expect more unusual things to begin bobbing up in the Pacific in the months to come, including car tires, the wings of airplanes and – Jesus – "feet in sneakers." (At least West Coasters are used to the severed feet.)
* The 'severed feet' are not really severed feet per se, it's just that modern sneakers don't get eaten by fishes, and end up washing up on beaches still containing feet.
