Tar Balls Wash Ashore At Cocoa Beach
More than a dozen tar balls have been found in a 2- to 3-mile stretch of Cocoa Beach during the past two days, according to Brevard County authorities. Lifeguards said some beachgoers collected the tar balls in buckets. One woman said she found one that was as big as a roof shingle. The tar balls have washed ashore at Lori Wilson Park, and also along the shore from 6th Street southward to the Cocoa Beach Pier. “I don’t like it at all. They are ruining our beaches -- even all the way up here on the East Coast,” one beachgoer said Cocoa Beach Tar Balls Kimberly Prosser, a spokeswoman for Brevard County, said the tar balls will be examined to determine if they came from the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Results are expected back within the next couple of days.
