Ocean Springs, MS: “Oil appeared to be coming up FROM UNDER THE SAND in many places” (PHOTOS)


Photos: Oil in Ocean Springs, Oil Spill Action (Blog of attorney Stuart H. Smith), August 25, 2010:

New Orleans-based photographer Jerry Moran: All images taken Aug. 21 in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, Latitude 30,21.7755N, Longitude 88,46.0167W. ...

Oil appeared to be coming up from under the sand in many places.

It may have been covered by tides, as it worked its way back to the water after being pushed up into the marsh, effectively contaminating small inlet waterways.

The sand native to Ocean Springs is not red or orange as it appears in the photos, but white (see first image below and compare to other beach images).

See report here. h/t Alexander Higgins.

  • I am hearing from people who still believe there was Never an oil spill in the first place- how can this be? I'm taking it that the publishers of this excellent site have seen the evidence first hand? These photos look pretty devastating to me - How can there still be people who think there is NO OIL?

    Some people also don't believe we ever went to the Moon. Go figure.
