Its sounds like unwarranted fear mongering to me. Even assuming that oil could be deposited on a major city, the volume of the oil and oil
byproducts being washed ashore by hurricane winds in relation to the accompanying rain falling would be very small. As a result, with perhaps the
exception of localized pools, the average layer of oil would be very thin and highly diluted. Just to add, I'm not at all convinced that oil/fuel
can condense and fall as rain under the same atmospheric conditions as water vapor can.
As the author says, oil and refined fuels evaporate. How long does it take a layer of oil a few hundreths of an inch thick to evaporate? Not long
at all, once the rain stops.
