This would not be an ordinary city on fire, either: It would be a city doused with volatile fuels that soaked it to the core. The sewers would explode like massive terrorist bombs, ripping to shred any underground infrastructure (fiber optics, water delivery, electrical infrastructure, etc.). The pavement itself would be on fire, as would parks, grasslands and forests. The city would burn from top to bottom, and there would be no point even trying to put out the flames.

I hate to break it to anyone but oil does not catch fire easily. It certainly would not explode like a "nuclear bomb".
Also, after a hurricane it takes months to dry out. Hurricanes will drop anywhere from 6 to 30" of water in the form of rain and most of the oil and toxins would wash away with the rain.
There's plenty to worry about there in the Gulf but I don;t think this is anything to lose sleep over.
