You may have heard of the oil spill in Orange County, causing roughly 126,000 gallons of oil to gush into the Catalina Channel, creating a slick that spanned about 8,320 acres.

This is an environmental catastrophe, killing fish and birds and threatening ecologically sensitive wetlands.

Assessment teams are checking our coastlines in San Diego County for any visible signs of oil.
