Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

A well­head off south­east­ern Louisiana was spew­ing oil and gas up to 100 feet into the air Tues­day, lo­cal of­fi­cials said. It is thought to have burst af­ter be­ing hit by a dredge barge be­ing pushed by a tug in Barataria Bay, al­though de­tails were be­ing in­ves­ti­gated, said Petty Of­fi­cer Tom Atke­son of the Coast Guard.

A cleanup crew from a com­pany in Houma that is al­ready in­volved in the BP spill re­sponse was sent to the area.
