Houston — The Houston Chronicle is reporting; tar balls washed up in Mustang Island State Park Sunday as oil from last week's spill in Galveston Bay continues to slide down the coast.
Lt. Tyrone Conner of the U.S. Coast Guard confirmed clean-up crews were dispatched to the popular camping and swimming spot on the barrier island near Corpus Christi, about 200 miles from the site of the March 22 spill.
