Oil Spill

New, 1 comment

An investigation is underway to see if a World War II torpedoed tanker is leaking copious amounts of oil from its watery grave. Divers from Montauk at the British ship Coimbra, which sits off of Shinnecock's shores, found themselves covered in oil after a recent visit, prompting a need for further research into the origin. One diver suspects there are thousands of pounds still on the ship, a wildlife hazard indeed. [EH Star]
