Perhaps the oil like substance are left over from the BP disaster. It is makes sense that some of the oil and stuff they used to clean up the oil moved into the Gulf Stream and made its way up your way. Then during the developement of the storm, was caught up in the evaporation process that fed the violent storm. Be advised, I made this with absolutley no scientific evidence, sources or really thinking it through. Just a shot into the wind.edit on 31-10-2013 by Spader because: (no reason given)

The microbes eat up the oil but they create slime out of it. They do poop you know. That poop is full of a metabolite of oil. I tried oil eating microbes for eating the oil on my garage floor. That stuff was gross that they excreted but the clay sweeping compound did attach to it. They left a semi greasy slime but did get the oil out of the concrete where it could be dealt with better..
