Sea waves bring tsunami debris to Trincomalee shore

[TamilNet, Sunday, 06 February 2005, 21:08 GMT]
Sea waves are daily carrying logs of wood and coconuts, which are said to be tsunami debris from other countries to the shore of Trincomalee coastal villages, from Manaiyaweli to Salli north of east port town. Two decomposed bodies of women were also washed ashore in the Trincomalee beach near Pallathoddam Saturday evening.

Bodies are said to be of foreigners died in tsunami in other countries. Trincomalee Police have taken steps to produce the bodies for DNA test before being buried, police said.

Fisher families living along the coastline are finding difficult to remove the debris daily carried by sea waves and authorities fear of environmental pollution if these debris are not removed and disposed. Most of the logs of wood were more than ten feet long.

Residents, men and women of Thirukadaloor, a suburb of the east port town Sunday held a shramadana campaign with the assistance of the Trincomalee Welfare Association which is funded by Trincomalee youths domiciled in Canada to remove tsunami debris brought by sea waves. Tractors were deployed to remove that debris to the dumping ground of the local authorities several kilometres away from the town. Coconuts were burnt and buried in the beach.
