Oil spill off California coast threatens wetlands and wildlife Updated: 2021-10-04 14:41:00 KST

Over in the U.S.
A pipeline failure off the coast of Orange County, California on Saturday caused at least 126-thousand gallons of oil to spill into the Pacific Ocean.
By Sunday, dead fish and birds had been washed ashore as cleanup crews raced to contain the spill.
It created a 13-square-mile slick that extended from Huntington Beach to Newport Beach.
The beaches were closed on the third day of the annual Pacific Airshow, when an estimated 1.5 million people gathered on the oceanfront.
It was not immediately clear what caused the leak.
Officials said it involved a failure in a 17.5-mile pipeline connected to an offshore oil platform called "Elly," operated by Beta Offshore.
Investigations are being carried out to pinpoint the cause of the spill and the type of oil involved.
