After responding to the situation yesterday, the Coast Guard has finally released details on the oil spill off Valentino Pier in Red Hook, which was allegedly killing starfish along the shore. About 15 gallons of oil leaked into the water, spreading out 150 feet and tinging the water red. Residents could smell the oil all through the neighborhood, and one told the Daily News, "For this to happen, it's devastating."

The Coast Guard is investigating the spill in relation to a report from the tug Timothy Reinauer, where a dive company found a crack in the hull near the fuel tank, and believe it could have spilled the oil. Miller's Environmental Group is currently cleaning up the spill, but mariners and land-lubbers alike are advised not to go near the water until the oil is fully cleaned.
