4:33 am
at the history of oil spills. we've seen in california over the past few years. >> the oil spill invading the coast of orange county is reported to be roughly 13 square miles in scope originating from a pipeline off the coast of huntington beach connected to an offshore oil platform. the leak has spewed at least 126,000 gallons of crude oil into the pacific ocean making its way to our beaches. the slick blanket of pollution is devastating. but compare this to the blowout on an offshore platform in 1969 that disaster released between 3 4 million gallons of crude oil into the santa barbara channel killing thousands of birds dolphins seals and sea lions. it was the largest spill off america's coasts at the time and sparked environmental policy change and their creation of earth day problems
4:34 am
like this. do not happen often. i think it's relatively believes the last oil spill we had several years ago and that was from a tanker not from oil rake. >> blowout, at least off southern california. so it doesn't happen that often of southern california. oil i'm kind oil spills. typically happen in areas like the north sea where there's a lot of weather and a lot of waves officials and public safety personnel consider each crisis a learning experience in 1968 major tanker owners and operators around the world. formed a special organization. >> to study and address the issues of spill prevention and response and starting in 1972 congress passed the clean water act giving the environmental protection agency and coast guard expanded authority to prevent and respond to oil and hazardous substance releases the epa required facilities
4:35 am
with above ground or underground storage tanks to formulate spill prevention control and countermeasure plans even with the safeguards oil spills will impact marine life and human beings who get too close to the polluted waters or coastline. cleanup could be a very long process. they typically start by putting booms all water. and those are kind of i lieen them to water wings for kids, their flotation devices that. >> prevent the oil from from getting farther out into the ocean. they also have a process where they can take a boat and skimming off the top. if it's really that they light it on fire. but then you're putting the talks. chemical says the atmosphere. so that's not great. >> was chris wolfe reporting for us. well, switching gears and talk about coronavirus more than 700,000 americans have died from covid-19 since the pandemic first began. but nearly a 100,000 americans have died since mid-june. most of the deaths in recent months
