Oil Spill on the Mississippi

Spreading slick

A flyover by the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) in the Venice area of south Louisiana (120 km, 75 miles south of New Orleans) late Thursday evening spotted what the department is now calling a major oil spill spreading in the Mississippi River.

On Friday, a DEQ spokesman said that the agency believes that up to 2 million gallons of oil could have escaped from the storage facility.

The slick is visible and is leaking into the river from an area near two storage tanks which have a combined capacity of 80,000 barrels—3.36 million gallons.

As a comparative metric, the Exxon Valdez spilled some 11 million gallons into Prince William Sound.
