From the Courier-Post:

Santa Barbara County is the latest seaside community to watch its coastline dirtied by an all-too-recognizable black sludge. Early estimates project that more than 100,000 gallons of oil have spilled onto Refugio State Beach via a pipe that burst the morning of May 19. To address the spill, Gov. Jerry Brown has declared a state of emergency so that special state funds can be dedicated to the cleanup effort.
