No confirmation yet that a 126,000-gallon oil pipeline leak causing a 13-square-mile slick in California is fixed: Birds and fish are washing up dead and mayor says Huntington Beach could close for months

California is bracing for an 'environmental catastrophe' amid fears that a 126,000-gallon oil pipeline leak which is behind a 13-square-mile slick has still not stopped.

More than 3,000 barrels of heavy crude have spilled into the Pacific Ocean between Huntington Beach Pier and Newport Beach, a stretch of more than five miles.

Dead birds and fish have been washing up along Orange Country's famous beaches covered in sludge since the breach in the pipeline was reported on Saturday.
