. An oil spill off the California coast destroyed a wildlife habitat and caused dead birds and fish to wash up on Huntington Beach « JO LEE MAGAZINE

CNN- A swath of the Southern California coast is covered with oil after 3,000 barrels’ worth gushed into the Pacific Ocean — devastating some of the local wildlife, officials said.

A pipeline breach occurred about 5 miles off the coast of Huntington Beach, Orange County Supervisor Katrina Foley said Sunday.
A total of 1,218 gallons of oily water mixture have been recovered from the spill, the United States Coast Guard said in a statement.
“This response is currently a 24/7 operation and response efforts are scheduled to continue until federal and state officials determine that the response to the crude oil spill is complete,” the USCG statement read.
