NEW YORK (Reuters) - A second coal ash leak was reported from a Duke Energy Corp landfill near the company’s retired Sutton Power Plant in Wilmington, North Carolina, following storm Florence, environmental officials said on Monday. The cause of the release is unknown and still being investigated, he said. “We are repairing it and we continue to be confident that the public and the environment are well protected,” said Candice Knezevic, a spokeswoman for Duke. In the earlier release, the site lost enough material to fill about two-thirds of an Olympic-sized pool, the company said in a statement.
