South Texas Oil Storage Crude Spilled In Floodwaters: AP
State officials say floodwaters from Tropical Storm Harvey toppled two oil storage tanks in south Texas, spilling almost 30,000 gallons of crude, The Associated Press reported Wednesday night.
Burlington Resources Oil and Gas reported the spills in DeWitt County to the Texas Railroad Commission on Wednesday.
They include a 385 barrel spill near the town of Westhoff and a 316 barrel spill west of Hochheim. That's an area about 150 miles west of Houston.
