WHITING, IN (WKZO) -- BP is estimating up to 18 barrels of crude oil gushed from its refinery in Whiting, Indiana into Lake Michigan on Monday, which is equal to up to 756 gallons. The Coast Guard says the exact volume is still being determined.

A shoreline cleanup assessment team made up of the Coast Guard, Environmental Protection Agency and BP staff found "minimal oiling" on the shore during three hours of inspections Wednesday. The EPA and Coast Guard are overseeing the cleanup operations.
