Initial Notification: On August 13, 2022, the USCG contacted the Office of Response and Restoration Emergency Response Division to report that an estimated 1000 gallons of oil were released from the 530-foot container vessel, the S A Sabrina, at the Port of Miami. Reports of bathers on Miami Beach getting oil on them were received on 13 August. Additionally, tarballs were reported on the beach about 5 miles north of Government Cut.
