Oil lands of the beaches to the west of the Mississippi.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
13 May 2010. Grand Isle, Lafourche Parish, Louisiana.
Oil containment booms lie uselessly washed up on an inland tidal beach in Grand Isle. Fierce tidal currents and changeable weather makes it virtually impossible to keep booms in place around the parish. The first sticky spots of oil surfaced on the west of the Mississippi river and have been confirmed up and down the beaches of Jefferson and Lafourche parishes. Oil from the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe is evading booms laid out to stop it thanks in part to the dispersants which means the oil travels at every depth of the Gulf.
