Posted Tue May 18 2010: from WTSP:
Tar balls reported on Key West shores
About 20 tar balls have washed ashore in Key West, the U.S. Coast Guard said Monday night. They ranged in size from about three inches to about 8 inches. They were found on beaches of the Fort Zachary Taylor and the adjacent Navy beach at Truman Annex. The Coast Guard said they were recovered at a rate of about three tar balls an hour throughout the day. The heaviest concentration was found at high tide, shortly after noon. Samples were collected and will be shipped to a lab for analysis to determine their exact source, the Coast Guard said.
