58,000 gallons

As you probably heard, a container ship hit the San Francisco Bay Bridge on Wednesday dumping 58,000 gallons of heavy-duty bunker fuel oil into the bay. Reports say the cause of the accident is a mystery and that it's highly unusual, though also that the pilot of the ship has a record of other "incidents". Today, my heart goes out to the as yet unknown quantity of birds, fish, and marine mammals who have been coated in oil because of this accident and as a result are sick and/or dying. It makes me feel ill just thinking about it.
