BUSAN, South Korea -- An oil spill in Jeonnam Yeosu last Friday has led to emergency cleanup work around the Gyeongnam coast. 

Gyeongnam's coast saw waste that had absorbed significant amounts of oil. Waters close to Namhae-gun, Seo-myeon and Yeosu also saw a ring of oil form in the area. 

110 public officials, including maritime police in six regions are helping in the cleanup and deciding what next steps to take in the cleanup. 

Fishing areas and seafood consumption are also an area of concern after a Singaporean-registered oil rig carrying 278,584 tons of crude oil hit three floating bridges, dumping possibly up to 131,000 liters of oil into the sea.
