    Holly Stephey talks to Joint Information center about Oil spill in Santa Barbara

    in News

    In this pre recorded show I talk to "Joint Information Center" about the current situation in Santa Barbara and the oil spill. Make sure to be prepared to take down the website and Phone number you may call to volunteer or help!


    This Oil Spill has affected so many people and our wildlife in so many ways and they are working round the clock to help however they can ..It was enough to prompt Gov. Jerry Brown to declare a state of emergency for Santa Barbara County.


    The cleanup could last months, officials said. For now, currents, tides and winds make the oil plume "a moving target" as it drifts offshore, said U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Jennifer Williams.


    "It's a continual effort," added U.S. Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer David Mosley. "It's not something that we can say, 'Yeah, we are hitting it out of the park,' but it's something our guys are dedicated to."


    The size of the spill, which began contaminating California's beaches on Tuesday, is equivalent to the volume of water the average American residence uses in a year.


    As of Thursday, vessels had skimmed 7,770 gallons of oily water from the ocean, McMichael said.
