    Default Oil spill along North Coast

    Anybody know about an oil slick in/near Cabarete today? Lotsa black crude in the water and on the beach. Just got back from a walk and feet are covered in the thick goo.

    Default bit of a mess

    Orilla del Mar to Kite Beach, blobs of oil.

    Find the ship that did this and make them pay for clean up.

    Did anybody alarm the Ministerio de Tourismo and the Ministerio de Medioambiente (we got one, don't we?), or know how to contact them?

    I think that would be the first direct step, along with the newspapers help making it less easy to "overlook".

    Default Dammm!

    I hope the mess is not that bad. Man, this news really upsets me. Are the local officials going to do something about it?

    No news yet here in Cabarete. I notified the President of the Cabarete Busineess Association and am waiting for word. 2 clients returned from the beach today with oil on their feet, this is terrible !

    Terrible but not surprising.
    If you get oil on your feet kerosene will take it off.
    I have been surprised that this doesn't happen more often.

    Cooking oil will also get oil and tar off skin.

    Default Oil ashore at Perla Marina as well

    Yesterday at approximately 3 PM I unfortunately stepped into some oil which had come ashore in a small cove just west of the main Perla Marina beach. Consequently the problem seems to stretch from at least Perla Marine to East Cabarete.

    Has anyone discovered oil between Perla Marina and Sosua?

    Government officials need to be informed of this situation. If anyone knows who to contact and how to contact them, please do so. Thanks.
