RT: Sandy causes 300,000-gallon diesel spill into water near New Jersey

Breaking news



A major oil spill has occurred in the strait of water separating
Staten Island, NYC and the state of New Jersey. The spill, of more than
300,000 gallons of diesel fuel, reportedly occurred in the wake of
Superstorm Sandy.

The Coast Guard said the incident occurred in the Arthur Kill tidal
strait as fuel leaked from the Motiva oil tank facility, according to a
report by NBC New York. Some 200 people have been working to contain the
spill.

By Wednesday evening all the spilled oil was believed to be contained
by booms put in the water, the Coast Guard said, according to AP.

Environmental officials in New Jersey say 336,000 gallons of diesel
fuel spilled after a storage tank was lifted and ruptured by a water
surge caused by Superstorm Sandy on Monday night.

Oil has already started to wash up on a nearby shore, authorities said.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection commented that
the company operating the oil tank facility reported the spill and hired
contractors to clean it up.

President Barack Obama earlier toured Sandy-devastated areas of New
Jersey and reasserted the government’s support for any victims, saying “we are here for you, and we will not forget.”

He also put aside politics to praise New Jersey Governor Chris
Christie, a Republican and vocal supporter Mitt Romney, for his relief
efforts. “I want to let you know that your governor is working overtime,” Obama said. Christie returned the kind words, later tweeting the he accepts Obama’s help and “appreciate his good will”.
