Two Sunken Vessels Release Oil, Diesel on West Coast

Jan. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Two sinking vessels deposited oil and diesel fuel in separate incidents this weekend on the West Coast, according to filings with the U.S. National Response Center.

One vessel released 50 barrels of diesel fuel while sinking on Lake Union in Seattle yesterday. Another leaked oil after sinking in San Francisco Bay near Brisbane, California, on Jan. 11. Booms were put in place in both cases to secure the surrounding area.

Further details on both incidents weren’t immediately available.
