Preliminary Report Shows Cause of California Oil Spill
New details this morning about an oil spill off the coast of central California.
A preliminary report found the spill was caused by a damaged section of pipeline.
It ruptured after being worn down to just a fraction of an inch.
That caused more than 100,000 gallons of crude oil to leak along nearly 10 miles of coastline.
The report does show that an area close to the break had corrosion repairs back in 2012.
The broken pipeline is now shut down and will not re-open.
