WW2 Tanker Environment

WW2 Tanker Environment

This Nov. 7, 1941 image provided by the U.S. Coast guard shows the British oil tanker Coimbra. The Coimbra was torpedoed by a German U-boat in January 1942 off the coast of New York, killing 36 officers and crew members aboard. The Coast Guard said in a news release that a team has pumped more than 62,000 gallons of oil from its tanks since May 11, 2019. Initial dive operations found the tanker, resting in 180 feet of water, was leaking small amounts of oil. (U. S. Coast Guard via AP)
