One kilometer-long oil spill found at Sanya Yalong Bay beach
Beach within 2 meters off the shoreline of Yalong Bay was filled with particles of black oil, which spread an area of more than one kilometer. People walking about 10 miles away from the beach could smell the heavy oil odor.
After swimming in the sea water, many tourists felt uncomfortable and found their bodies covered with an unusual layer of silver oil, which is difficult for them to wash up.
As more and more tourists reflected the problem of oil floating on the surface of the water, the staff in the area gathered to clean up the oil spill around the beach.
The local marine environmental monitoring office has sent investigators to collect some oil samples for further observation. According to the officers, the oil spill is probably the result of oil leakage from ships in the sea.
