|Grand Isle Mayor David Camardelle confirmed reports from tourists and residents that the oil washed up on a handful of beaches near Grand Isle's main beach area this weekend. The Coast Guard is on the scene, mobilizing clean-up crews and working to determine the cause of the situation. An initial prediction is that the oil is coming from a leaky drilling rig near Grand Isle, with oil spread over a five-mile area. But by other accounts, the situation could be much worse.|
