California spill not the environmental disaster first feared

A seagull rests as workers in protective suits clean the contaminated beach after an oil spill, Wednesday, Oct. 6, 2021 in Newport Beach, Calif. After a crude oil sheen was detected on the waters off the California coast, environmentalists feared the worst. Now, almost a week later, some say weather conditions and quick-moving actions have spared sensitive wetlands and scenic beaches in Orange County's Huntington Beach a potentially calamitous fate, though the long term toll of the spill remains unknown.
