Sad news over in Kalamazoo Michigan, there has been a major oil spill in the Kalamazoo river. 800,000 gallons have poured into the creek that connected into the river.
Some of the oil may reach Lake Michigan, which is connected to the Kalamazoo River. You see how everything is connected? It’s very scary!
The cause of the oil spill was from a oil pipeline leak, it’s still under investigation why it happened.
It sure is a sad site to see, birds are walking around with oil coated on them, and fish are starting to float up to the top of the water dead.
I do hope they can contain this disaster!
There is also the concern with a possible presence of cancer-causing chemical benzene.
On Tuesday, the company said it hadn’t found any levels that would be of concern in residential areas.
I think otherwise!
