Over 126,000 Gallons Of Crude Oil Spilled Off the Coast of Huntington Beach, California
About 126,000 gallons of crude oil spilled into the ocean, off the coast of Huntington Beach, California. Officials say on Oct. 2, oil began leaking from an underwater pipe line about 4-and-a-half miles off shore. Professional clean-up crews are out with protective booms and skimming equipment, doing their best to slow the spread of the oil to protect wildlife, beaches and marshlands. But even 3,000 barrels of sludge couldn’t keep some from catching a wave in Surf City, USA.
