Tar balls “all over the beach” on Florida’s East Coast; “I can’t believe how big they’re coming in”

Tar Balls Wash Ashore In Central Fla., Channel 4 Jacksonville, July 7, 2010:

Beach Patrol said the biggest concentrations are washing up between Minute Man Causeway and Sixth Avenue.

People in Brevard County are fearing the worst -- that the tar balls came from the Gulf.

"I'm just picking up the pieces and I can't believe how big they're coming in, and it's all over the beach," a beachgoer said on Tuesday. ...

Officials have determined the tar balls did not come from a shrimp boat that sank in May.
