Ocean Saratoga: Another Oil Spill In The Gulf? Coast Guard Investigates

Another rig has been leaking since late April. Nothing like the Deepwater but enough to create a slick visible in Satellite photos. It just gets worse each day.

well here we go again and now we are going to be feeling the effects for yrs to come I am sure and I hope and pray everyday that someone , anyone figures out how to stop this before we all are dead . Yes folks if any of this stuff gets airborne and we dont even know if it can then we are all doomed . I hope we figure out a way to stop this and soon .

Are you near Grand Isle?

What is going on down there?
There are stories going around that people are being arrested for having cameras. That their cameras are being confiscated. That they are not allowed to talk to reporters.
Go here and listen to what they are saying. Supposedly this guy James Fox is a reliable reporter.
Media Blackout and Arrests taking place at the Gulf, listen to interview
Is what he is saying true?

you can see video of caked chocolate looking oil sludge washing up on Port Fourchon. Its obvious that Grand Isle looks very similar , being only a few miles to the east. Im kind of pissed off personally, because our family enjoyed GRand Isle vacation a few years ago before Hurricane Gustav, and wanted to return there this year. But that has been put on hold indefinitely.

I hadnt heard about that, and no I'm in Lake Charles. Which is a good hour away from most of the cameron parish(w/ the exception of big lake). But I'll definitely look @ that link and try to stay updated.
