Mysterious Oil Slick Found in the Gulf of Mexico

Origins Unknown

The US Coast Guard responded to alerts of a mysterious oil slick around 7 a.m. Wednesday morning, June 8, 2011. According to early news released from the Coast Guard, the source of this oil is still unknown.

While speculation continues as to the source of the slick, cleanup efforts are underway. Within hours, the Coast Guard responded with pollution investigators and cleanup boats with oil containment boom were on their way to the site.
