An onshore pipeline in California ruptured, spilling roughly 21,000 gallons of crude oil. The spill flowed into a storm drain that empties into the Pacific Ocean resulting in a four-mile slick off the coast of Santa Barbara. Regugio State Beach - a popular Memorial Day destination - has been evacuated and campers at a nearby state park were also asked to leave.

From the Los Angeles Times: " 'It is horrible,' said Brett Connors, 35, a producer from Santa Monica who said he spotted seal lions swimming in the oil slick. 'You want to jump in there and save them.' "
