The cooler weather is here, and scientist say it's likely to bring more tsunami debris with it.

Due to higher wind speeds, scientists believe the nearly 5 million tons of debris sitting in the ocean will soon wash ashore.

It's the result of an earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan a year and a half ago.

Up to now, most of the debris found was likely floating on top of the water.

As a reminder if you see any mysterious debris do not touch it, but call the tsunami marine debris hotline at 2-1-1.
