tar balls long beach

It has not been a good stretch for the California coastline.

Just weeks after Santa Barbara’s devastating oil spill and tar balls washing ashore in South Bay comes…yet more tar balls!  This time, Long Beach’s coastline had to be shut down when the gross gobs of petroleum washed ashore on Wednesday.

The Coast Guard was on the beach grabbing samples and cleaning the beach throughout the day.

No word yet if this round of tar balls is related to the Santa Barbara spill on May 19.
