The U.S. Coast Guard's Pacific Strike Team is on Oahu today to work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the State Department of Health to evaluate Honolulu Harbor and its surrounding waters following Monday's molasses spill.

This is the latest of federal resources that U.S. Senator Brian Schatz has deployed to help the State.
