Probably following the example in Pearl Harbour - the Arizona, sunk in 1941.
When I mentioned to the officer beside me that there was a slow, steady stream of HFO coming up to the surface, she replied it was the tears of the dead.

So, I wonder how many tons are still on the bottom at Pearl, just waiting for that first piece of steel to finally give way and let even larger amounts come to the surface?
