Scouts Aid Tsunami Cleanup

Cleanup efforts after the March 11 Japanese earthquake and tsunami will be daunting, far-reaching and time-consuming.

Boy Scouts help clean up after a tidal surge causes damage in Hawaii.

But every little bit helps, as these Boy Scouts from Hawaii show.

A tidal surge from the tsunami damaged shorelines, destroyed homes and property, and deposited debris along beaches throughout the state.

At Kaloko-Honokohau National Historic Park, damage was minimal, but lots of debris was strewn along the park’s two miles of shoreline.

With help from Kona Boy Scout Troop 31, the debris — including a few logs and pieces from the wreck of a sailboat six years ago — was picked up and hauled away within a few hours.

Kudos to the Scouts for taking the time to serve their community!
