    What is happening the world over? Spilling of fuel. Y are those involved NOT careful coz it certainly damages sea-life and human lives too. those who are irresponsible need to be brought to book and punishment meted out.

    Spillage due to leakage is understandable but due to overflowing cannot be excused. Surely, were the guys sleeping!

    With Megampura, Oluvil and other port developments, how well prepared is SLPA and others in dealing with possible such incidents in our rich coastal waters? Fishermen, Hoteliers take note.

    Hope its not be another gulf of mexico???

    This is not a major calamity as it was only an overflow, not like a oil well gushing our crude oil. Chemical dispersants could easily take care of any spill of this nature.

    Hope this will not be another reason for Oil price increase in near future!
