An estimated 500,000 gallons of oil escaping from a sunken tank barge has spread across 300 miles of the Caribbean and is fouling beaches of Puerto Rico, St. Kitts, St. Thomas, St. Croix and other islands, the U.S. Coast Guard said Sunday. The oil is from the Trinidad-registered barge Vesta Bella, which sank March 6 in nearly 2,000 feet of water about 13 miles off St. Kitts.
