Whenever there is an incident involving more than one agency with jurisdiction, a joint command arrangement, called the Unified Command is implemented. This webpage provides a compilation of general information, reports, press releases, maps and relevant links meant to aid members of the Unified Command and inform the public during a response. Not all information provided here has been jointly approved or endorsed by every member of the Unified Command.

Location
Port William, Southern end of Shuyak Island, approximately 50 miles NNW of the city of Kodiak
Time/Date
The incident occurred at approximately 8:00 a.m. on February 26, 2018
Spill Id
18249905701
Product/ Quantity
Up to 3,000 gallons of Fuel Oil No. 6 (Bunker C).
Cause
It was previously reported that wind gusts exceeding 80 mph pushed a building with the fuel bladder off a dock, causing the 3,000 gallon capacity fuel bladder to rupture and release its contents. Upon further investigation it has been determined that the dock structure supporting the building collapsed. This caused much of the building, along with the fuel bladder, to fall to the shoreline and water below.
