3 - THE NUMBER OF NEW OIL SPILLS TODAY IN THE GULF- July 12, 2011
5 years ago

 

The U.S. Coast Guard today is investigating two reports of oil in Barataria Bay, including one near Bay Jimmy that was reported by officials with a shoreline assessment team for the joint federal and BP cleanup of oil from last year’s BP Deepwater Horizon spill. Meanwhile, records with the National Response Center indicate there was a third report of “a mystery sheen” about 3 miles southwest of the oil reported near Bay Jimmy. That report, called in at 9 a.m. Monday, was from someone flying over Barataria Bay. The Coast Guard is not investigating that report. http://www.nola.com/environmen​t/index.ssf/2011/07/coast_guar​d_investigates_new_r.html
