It's raining microplastics: Hurricane Larry dropped plastic particles all over N.L.

  • Hurricane Larry brought millions of microplastic particles from the Atlantic Ocean to Newfoundland and Labrador during its landfall in 2021, according to researchers from Dalhousie University.
  • The rainwater collected during the storm contained significantly higher levels of microplastics, with nearly 115,000 particles per square meter per day, compared to the average of 20,000 particles before and after Larry's passing.
  • The presence of microplastics in rainwater highlights the pervasive nature of microplastic pollution and the need for public awareness and action to curb plastic production.
