Cleanup efforts are continuing along the coast of Orange County, California, as of October 6, 2021. California state officials confirmed an anchor caused a split in a pipeline, located approximately 8 km (5 miles) off the coast, causing the spill. More than 300 personnel are participating in the cleanup efforts, but the number is likely to significantly increase in the coming days.
Authorities in Orange County have issued a health advisory recommending individuals who may have been in contact with oil to seek medical attention. Additionally, numerous beaches in the area have been closed indefinitely, including those between Santa Ana River Jetty and Seapoint Street in Huntington Beach and all city and county beaches in Laguna Beach. The oil spill is also likely to cause a backlog of cargo ships in the area due to the ongoing cleanup efforts along the coast. Localized disruptions around the Orange County coastline are likely for the coming days.
