BP Oil Disaster Reaches Alabama?
Globs of tar are now washing up on the coast of Alabama, in the Dauphin Island area. The gooey muck has been collected by officials and sent to labs for analysis. It has not yet been conclusively determined whether the tar comes from the Deepwater Horizon incident, but according to Mayor Jeff Collier, "we certainly assume that to be the case."
BP spokesman John Curry had already confirmed that oil has impacted Freemason Island, just south of the Chandeleur Islands. Further reports followed with other sightings of oil washing up on the Chandeleur Islands.
