  • WASHINGTON-Workers have deployed containment booms and skimmer devices in an attempt to contain a sizable oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
  • The spill is in waters off Port Fourchon, Louisiana-near where Ida made landfall-in a region that is a major hub of the US petrochemical industry.
  • It was in the petroleum-rich Gulf of Mexico that an explosion ripped through the Deepwater Horizon oil platform in 2010, touching off the worst oil spill in history.
