Coastal News Roundup: Explosions, Oil Spills, Restoration Funding

Oct 22, 2017

On this week's installment of the Louisiana coastal roundup, WWNO's Tegan Wendland talked with NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune coastal reporter Sara Sneath about an oil spill near Venice that has been characterized as the largest spill in the U.S. since BP's Macondo well blowout in 2010.

The duo also cover more light-hearted news, such as the interesting mating rituals of blue crabs.
