Coast Guard Locates Oil Sheens in San Pablo Bay After Odor Sickens Vallejo Residents

NBC Bay Area

Two large oil sheens on San Pablo Bay Wednesday morning, after a mysterious odor prompted shelter-in-place orders in Vallejo Tuesday night, appear to have come from a Phillips refinery tanker in Rodeo, authorities said. Coast Guard crews earlier laid down a thousand-foot boom to contain oil surrounding the Yamuna Spirit tanker. Scientist Ian Wren of Baykeeper said his environmental advocacy group is working closely with the Coast Guard.
