Reuters: Hawaii’s health officials have warned swimmers, snorkelers and surfers to stay out of waters near Honolulu after a leak of 1,400 tons of molasses earlier in the week killed hundreds of fish. The officials say this spill could draw sharks.
So many fish have died that the Hawaii Department of Health has tripled cleanup crews to three boats. Hundreds of fish have been removed and thousands more are expected to be removed, a statement from the department said.
