Tuesday afternoon, an onshore pipeline broke and spilled about 21,000 of crude oil into a storm drain that emptied in the the ocean near Refugio State Beach, a pristine cove about ten miles north of Santa Barbara.
The spill covered about four miles, and beaches in the area remain closed while emergency crews attempt to clean up the mess.
