More than 1,000 pounds of oil have already been removed from the shores of New Orleans on Lake Ponchartrain. From boat docks to water front subdivisions, tar balls the size of silver dollars are washing up everywhere. Thankfully New Orleans gets it's drinking water from the Mississippi River, so it does not pose a direct problem to the public's health.

New Orleans is more than 100 miles from the original spill in the Gulf, everyone was worried and waiting, but there has been no oil in the town, until now. According to the oil spill response headquarters in New Orleans, crew have put up around 600 feet of boom to try and prevent more oil from reaching the lake.

The issue seems to be getting worse, we all can do a part in trying to help with relief efforts. If you haven't seen it yet, make sure you go check out Jordin Sparks in New Orleans for Cambio Cares doing her part in helping out the community!
