California Tar Balls

Large balls of tar washed up on the shores of Coronado Beach in California late last week. Altogether, there was enough to fill a 55-gallon drum. Beachcombers were warned to steer clear, though they were not thought dangerous.

Experts note this waste could be from an earlier spill, not from one reported Saturday. However, the tarballs were first reported Saturday. Samples from the balls found are being examined and compared to the diesel spill Saturday.
