Hurricane Ike garbage & debris

Hurricane Ike garbage & debrisNo bodies have been found amid the rubble.

“The plastic is a real killer of both turtles and birds.”

There’s not enough trailers to pull the plastic away.

Tons of debris swept up by Hurricane Ike last month were carried by Gulf of Mexico currents hundreds of miles from the upper Texas coast to this ordinarily pristine landscape just north of the Mexican border.

Sections of roofs, refrigerators, loveseats, beds, TVs, hot tubs and holiday decorations litter the more than 60 miles of gently arcing sand in the national park. [newsvine]
