Multiple Agencies Working Newport Beach Oil Spill

Long Beach, CA...The unified command is continuing its response Sunday to the reported oil spill off Newport Beach. All available actions are being taken to ensure the safety of the public and response personnel, to control the source and recover spilled materials, to maximize the protection of environmentally sensitive areas and minimize impact to maritime commerce.

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.

As of Sunday, a total of 1,218 gallons of oily water mixture have been recovered, nine boats were dispatched for oil spill recovery operations, three shoreline assessment teams have been dispatched and 3,700 feet of boom have been deployed.

Beaches have been closed starting at Seapoint Drive south to the Santa Ana River. Newport Beach has a soft closure and requests that the public stay out of the water from Tower 44 north to the Santa Ana River.

There are no impacts to commercial traffic and the Huntington Beach air show has been cancelled.

One oiled Ruddy duck has been collected and is receiving veterinary care. Other reports of oiled wildlife are being investigated. The Oiled Wildlife Care Network has been activated. For your safety and the safety of the animals, the public is asked to not attempt to capture oiled animals. Report oiled wildlife to 1-877-UCD-OWCN (1-877-823-6926).

Public volunteers are not requested at this time, but information can be found at https://calspillwatch.wildlife.ca.gov/Volunteer.

A claims number has been established for any individuals or businesses who feel they may have been affected by the incident (866) 985-8366 and reference Pipeline P00547.

The unified command consists of the Coast Guard, California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Office of Spill Prevention and Response (CDFW-OSPR) and Amplify Energy. Supporting agencies are the cities of Long Beach, Newport Beach and Huntington Beach.

The investigation continues into the cause of the spill.

Where are the people who scream about SOCIALISM when this happens? Surely a highly mature industry like the petrochemical industry can run their own affairs and not allow things to go wrong?

Surely we don't need the 'nanny state socialist Coast Guard' involved here. Right?

Surely this oil spill is all Libtard Fake News, and the dead animals aren't real according to Alex Jones.

Or.. you know... we could get serious about investing in our Infrastructure. And reduce these sort of problems. (But maybe that's me and my electric car talking.)

    And it takes fossil fuel to charge said electric car. So electric car virtue signalling will be just that for quite a few more years.

      mine charges off the roof. but i recognize I am the exception.

      HOWEVER, It been provided that 1,000 electric cars consuming electricity from a fossil fuel plan still is significantly less greenhouse gases emission that the sum total of 1,000 tailpipes.

        One large forest fire emits more CO2 than all the vehicles in ca for a year. Fixing our forests is actually the most impactful thing we can do

              Talk about karma.... This couldn't happen to a nicer group of people than the rich, anti-vax, anti-environmentalist dotards living in beautiful Huntington Beach. Right on! I hope they find much to enjoy in that big fossil fuel rainbow floating in the water and onto their beaches, boats, sand and surf. Support big business, don't protect the environment, win stupid prizes!

          The Dixie fire was reported to have released 100x the California vehicle emissions for a year when it was only a couple hundred acres. Then it went on towards almost a million acres.
          We could drive, at our current vehicle load, for hundreds of years before we equaled the emissions of the Dixie. That does not include any other fires.

        You need to search what is happening to China in trying to go electric. That, and pissing off Australia where they get their coal. Like 2/3rds of the country is in black outs as they try to make all the junk no one really needs. Shortages of everything are going to get real bad.

        We do not have the grid or power as we have had to have brown outs too. Building everywhere and letting people in the country is going to make basic life pretty miserable for everyone.

      I think it's because the Fox Mafira, and Facebook, and others have turned it that way.

        Try CNN,MSNBC,NYT, I could go on…

        How bout you actually use your brain and common sense if you have any. Neither party is in it for the people no argument there. What you need to understand are the facts.
        The question for you is more government better for our country? If you believe the answer is yes then you are a socialist Marxist tool. End of debate
