California oil spill likely 25,000 gallons

Huntington Beach, CA (AP) — Coast Guard officials believe the amount of crude oil spilled from a spill in an offshore pipeline in Southern California is close to 25,000 gallons, about five of what authorities initially feared. It states that it is only one-third.

The worst-case scenario for a leak off Orange County was previously determined to be less than 132,000 gallons. Coast Guard Captain Rebecca Ora said Thursday that the final number of spills is likely to approach the numbers below. This correlates with the amount of refueling found on the California coast.

Workers wearing protective equipment continue to comb sand to clean the oil on land.
