Re: [californiadisasters] Oil Aboard Sunken WWII Tanker May Pose Threat

The vast majority of the fuel onboard the U.S.S. Arizona the morning of the attack is still in her hulk today and as the hulk get's rusted through someday that fuel will be released into Pearl Harbor which will make quite a mess to clean up.

We went to the USS Arizona Memorial a couple weeks ago to pay our respects and found that there is still oil leaking from it also (likely bunker oil used as fuel, didn't ask the docent).  Not much, but noticeable amounts drifted by on the outgoing tide.  7 Dec 1941, 1177 entombed forever.
