On a Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana barrier island “oil oozes from a foot or two underground,” according a report by Fox 8 New Orleans.
P.J. Hahn, the Plaquemines Parish Coastal Zone Director the compared it to “Jed Clampet’s oil — All we need is the theme song to ‘The Beverly Hillbillies’… Oil just started bubbling out.”
When revisiting the island with the news crew, Hahn dug into the ground “turning up thick, black oil that had not been heavily weathered and did not appear to have been dispersed.”
“I would have never thought that this oil would be this deep underground,” Hahn said to Fox 8.
