OWCN on Standby

Earlier today a ship containing a full load of sardines ran aground on a sandbar off the Huntington Beach Channel. The Office of Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) and the Coast Guard immediately responded to the incident, and is considering how to best correct the situation. The OWCN has been placed on standby and is monitoring the situation. Also, feel free to view the Coast Guard’s press release on this situation.

This 58-foot fishing vessel Pacific Bully ran aground at the Santa Ana Jetty south of Huntington Beach Harbor. The OSPR is on scene with U.S. Coast Guard. Photo and caption courtesy of the OSPR's Twitter account. To follow them on Twitter check out @DFG_OSPR.
