Another oil well is leaking in Gulf

Reports surfaced today that another oil well, the Ocean Saratoga, is leaking oil into the Gulf and has been doing so since at least April 30th.  A long oil slick extending 10 miles from the rig is visible from satellite photos.  The spill is thought to be much smaller than the Deepwater Horizon spill but will contribute to the oil washing up on the gulf coast beaches and damaging wetland areas.

How many more wells are leaking?  No one knows.
