Two of three oil tanks washed away in southwestern China are still missing
Two of three oil tanks were washed away last week in southwestern China, and are still missing.
There was a rainstorm in Chongqing Municipality, and an ensuing flood washed away three oil tanks from a reservoir construction site last Friday.
The three tanks contained gasoline or diesel oil and were 3 meters long and 1.8 meters in diameter.
At 6pm the next day, a task force discovered one of the three tanks in Kaixian. It was damaged and sources confirmed there was an oil leak.
The local government plans to employ a professional wrecking company to salvage the recovered tank while also continuing the search for the other two tanks.
