“Tarballs outnumber seashells” on Alabama beach, similar to areas in Pensacola Bay — Chunks of oil “rolling along the bottom” (VIDEO)


Gulf oil spill tarballs cover Fort Morgan, Press Register, January 02, 2011:

The tip of the Fort Morgan peninsula is awash in tarballs. ...

Along the water, the tarballs outnumber seashells and other flotsam. Hunks of oiled debris, including a mattress, were strewn along the beach Wednesday morning. Bits of tar were wedged into the crevices of fighting conchs and cockle shells. ...

A similar phenomenon has played out just inside the mouth of Pensacola Bay and along the tips of the barrier islands, according to Press-Register surveys of those locations.

Tarballs also appeared to be present in the shallow water just offshore, and could be seen rolling along the bottom in a few inches of water.

    NowWhat...?
    You gotta grab your most important stuff, quietly, perhaps,
    and flee to the upper greatplains/Rockies or north and west of there.
    The whole economy is soon kaput, martial law, young toxic
    returned hardened Soldiers from Afghan will now Search You,
    and Allow or Disallow you to flow through the Checkpoint.
    Time to Boogie out from the whole Southeast. Even Mississippi
    Valley up to Arkansas has now had this Bird Kill incident, and it
    is still only Winter.
    Run.
    I wish I was a more valuable Survivor Prospect myself.
    Time to think Swiss Family Robinson, Homesteaders sense of
    what is valuable. Think about all the back-to-land Hippies,
    hand Grinders for crude food processing, no electricity,
    Run.
