An underground pipeline that ruptured Tuesday has released at least 21,000 gallons of crude oil onto the beach and into the ocean along the Santa Barbara coast. The U.S. Coast Guard estimates the oil slicks stretch for nine miles. As cleanup efforts continue, we look at the environmental impacts of the spill, what may have caused it and what can be done to prevent future incidents.
