"Tsunami Ghost Ship" To Be Sunk Off BC Coast

The U.S. Coast Guard plans to sink an unmanned Japanese fishing vessel that has been drifting through the Pacific Ocean since a massive tsunami swept it from its moorings in March 2011.
The 150-foot boat is heading towards Alaska and could endanger other ships.

The Coast Guard plans to hit the ship with a cannon. Discovered last month near the coast of British Columbia, the ship is the first piece of tsunami garbage to reach North America.
