Oil spill off Southern Calif. coast reaches shore

An oil spill about a dozen miles off the Southern California coast reached shore in what has been called a “major spill.” According to Saturday reports, the leak was thought to have started along a nearby pipeline and spilled around 3,000 barrels of crude oil, or around 126,000 gallons, into the waters.
