Frustrated by the slow response to oil moving into Grand Isle, Jefferson Parish Emergency managers commandeered all of BP’s hired boats in Grand Isle, WWLTV reported Saturday:
A representative for Jefferson Parish Emergency chief Deano Bonano said they requested immediate action after oil moved into the marsh passes and onto the beaches in Grand Isle.
He said more than 40 boats were sitting idle while he watched the oil rush into the passes.
WWL noted that around 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Jefferson Councilman Chris Roberts confirmed the boats had been commandeered by JP emergency managers.
