Oil spill in Gulf of Mexico after Hurricane Ida one of over 2,000 reports of water pollution


The oil-covered birds were found near Alliance Refinery, run by Phillips 66 in Belle Chasse, La., on the banks of the Mississippi River. Floodwaters from Ida swamped the refinery, and in the days after the storm, a sheen of oil was seen on the water around the facility. Edwards, of the Coast Guard, said that flights over the area have found that all the oil is now contained within the berms around the facility.
