Alabama Residents Deal With Oily Rainfall

“Scarritt and his workers noticed recently that when the wind was coming in strong from the south, over a foamy, churned-up Gulf, the wind was carrying something new onto the beach. Just like you might get a film of seaspray on your sunglasses, the beach workers felt a greasier material,” according to the report. . .

“Geologist Mark White has also confirmed that oil was apparently airborne, coating the sea oats that line the sand dunes on the beach. He runs a white napkin along the stem of the plant, and it comes back with a greasy brown tinge. ‘Problematic for sure,’ he says… ‘We are trying to figure it out but we’re living in it while we’re trying to figure it out,’” the report noted.
