Deepwater Horizon Makes it to Texas


The U.S. Coast Guard confirmed today that tar balls from some Galveston beaches originated at the Deepwater Horizon oil leak. However, they are unsure if these balls arrived in Texas via currents or if they were transported by boasts travelling in the area that might have picked them up accidentally. The tacky nature of the balls make it possible for them to stick to the sides and bottoms of boats over long distances.

This latest announcement means that all of the Gulf Coast states have now seen oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill wash up on their shores.
