Dive will de­ter­mine any leaks from sunken tanker

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - NATION&WORLD2 -

A deep-dive oper­a­tion will be con­ducted to de­ter­mine whether oil is leak­ing from a British tanker sunk by the sub­ma­rine U-123 off Long Is­land in 1942. The Con­necti­cut Post said the wreck of the Coim­bra, which is 30 miles off Long Is­land’s south shore in about 180 feet of wa­ter, has been mon­i­tored since 1967. In 2009, recre­ational divers re­ported oil seepage.
