The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is sending two spill experts to Hawaii to help clean up some 1,400 tons of molasses that spilled into Honolulu Harbor this week.

U.S. Sen. Brian Schatz said Friday he plans to work with the state to make sure federal resources and expertise are used to help respond to the spill.
