A salmon farm and several birds were adversely affected in Chile following an oil slick in a southern water inlet. The oil slick took place after a tanker ran aground spilling 350,528 litres of crude oil, reported the Chilean navy. "The area has become inaccessible because of heavy rainfall and storms. Therefore, the full extent of the damage to fish and birds is unknown,' said Bernard Johnson, a spokesperson of the navy. Maritime authorities, however, say that the leak had caused no damage to the environment.
