Description

The California governor has declared a state of emergency for Santa Barbara County as a massive cleanup operation is underway to battle a huge oil spill off the Southern California coast. Authorities have closed down two popular beaches and called on volunteers to help control up to 400-thousand liters of crude oil. The oil spill has been caused by a ruptured underground pipeline owned by the Houston-based Plains All American Pipeline. The spill has already damaged the environment and poses a serious threat to the wildlife there. Officials estimate that it will take at least three days to clean up the spill before the damage can be assessed.
