Tar balls float off the coast of Grand Isle, LA.   Hurricane winds and the application of dispersant off-shore have resulted in many smaller slicks and coagulated tar balls impacting the coast in succession.  ..Photographs from Grand Isle and surrounding areas impacted by the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.  The spill is estimated to be gushing 35,000 to 60,000 barells of oil into the ocean per day.  Difficulties installing monitoring devices at the source have made this number difficult to clearly ascertain.  The spill is among the world's worst.
