Oil still in coastal Terrebonne marshes, WWL, October 11, 2010:
Russell Dardar of the Pointe-Au-Chien Indian tribe says neighbors are still finding fresh oil coming ashore, but what adds to the worry are the places where older oil is continuing to damage the marsh. Under the hard black surface is still liquid oil that coats gloves, and plants.
"Oil this thick right here, all through these grasses," said Russell. "Further in, that's all oil, and that's the next grass that is going to die."
"Very frightening, I've been shrimping, and crabbing, and oystering for over thirty years," said his brother Donald. "It's got me real worried." ...
"I'm very worried, because this is our livelihood, and what we do today is going to affect our grandkids," concluded Russell.
