One of the big concerns post BP oil spill has been the existence of large oil concentrations spilling upon the Louisiana coast land after a major storm such as Isaac.
That concerned just might be realized as oil remnants have been found on certain parts of the Louisiana coast that could be BP oil spill related.
Here is the information from the state:
Effective immediately, Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Secretary Robert Barham announced an emergency closure of a portion of coastal waters due to the emergence of a large tar mat and concentrations of tar balls on adjacent beaches. This action is taken in coordination with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, who will assist with the investigation to determine the extent, source, and impacts of the oil in the environment.
