“Oil is rolling in on the beaches” of Grand Isle; Sand is “turning it black” — “I’ve never seen it looking like this”


More oil coming into Grand Isle, Louisiana Bucket Brigade, January 5, 2011:

Louisiana Bucket Brigade's environmental monitor Peter Brabeck was in Grand Isle today (Jan. 5) and said oil is rolling in on the beaches of the state park and nearby. "I've been here many times and I've never seen it looking like this," Brabeck said of the oil mixing in with the beach sands, turning it black. Brabeck said BP cleanup crews were back on the scene, though they had decreased in past weeks. He talked to at least three locals who said they were alarmed by the number of helicopters and crews who have been rushing to Grand Isle over the last several days.
