OLYMPIA -- Gov. Chris Gregoire and other state officials are holding a news conference Monday in Ocean Shores to explain how the state responds to debris on the Washington coast from the Japanese tsunami.
The governor's office says Health Department staff will demonstrate how they use Geiger counters to test for radioactive contamination.
In addition to Gregoire, Health Secretary Mary Selecky, Ecology Director Ted Sturdevant and Washington National Guard commander Timothy Lowenberg will be at the news conference.
