HONOLULU (AP) — A senior executive for the shipping company responsible for spilling about 1,400 tons of molasses into Hawaii waters says the company hadn't planned for the possibility of a spill.
Vic Angoco said Thursday that Matson Navigation Co. had planned for spills of oil or other chemicals, but not for the sugary substance.
Hawaii Department of Health Deputy Director Gary Gill says about 2,000 dead fish have been collected in waters near Honolulu Harbor. Gill says officials believe the best plan is to let currents flush out and dilute the molasses.
The spill occurred Monday in an industrial area where Matson loads molasses and other goods for shipping.
Gill told reporters at a news conference more fish have died in this incident than in any other in the area.
