There’s a new oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico after a tug boat crashed into the wellhead on Tuesday. Located near Louisiana marshland, the leak was seen spewing a geyser of oil 20 feet into the air. Officials also fear that natural gas is leaking, since boats reported seeing a gas cloud near the wellhead. “There is a pretty good amount of oil flowing there,” said one Jefferson Parish councilman. It’s unclear currently who owns the well. Emergency crews are currently at the site of the leak, figuring out how to stop it.
