A leaking pipeline at an oil platform off of Huntington Beach and Newport Beach in Southern California has sent an estimated 3000 barrels of oil into the Pacific Ocean and onto shore, causing a “potential ‘ecological disaster'” in the area:
Major oil spill. Southern California. 3,000 barrels. Potential “ecological disaster.” Source-offshore rig. Beaches closed in Huntington Beach. Booms deployed. Sensitive habitats threatened. Oil has hit shore. Expected to reach Newport Beach soon. Sunday airshow may be canceled
