Oil Spill in Huntington Beach


On Friday, October 8, 2021 there was an oil spill at Huntington Beach. Reports say that a large vessel hit a pipeline that caused the accident and tens of thousands of gallons of crude oil was spilled in the ocean. The pipeline was dragged along the sea floor 105 feet from the accident. This indicates that a large ship was involved in the accident such as a cargo ship. Many cargo ships pass through Los Angeles and Long Beach. The Coast Guard said that they will be looking at ships who passed over the pipeline and will be looking for encroachment from the anchor for an entire year.
