Actual location of the spill

August 25, 2006

BELOW is a map of the oil spill in Guimaras (“borrowed” from the World Wildlife Fund’s web site), showing the affected towns and threatened areas. For a larger image, click here. This map was dated Aug. 21, and as per Sunstar’s report, the spill has already spread wider.

The red areas are where the oil spill has hit the hardest while those in blue are the threatened areas. Mid-point near the bottom of the map is where the oil tanker sank.
