Second Oil Rig Overturns in Louisiana

Not again: Reuters is reporting that a second oil rig has capsized on the Gulf Coast in inland waters near Morgan City, Louisiana. The Coast Guard has dispatched a team to the site of the accident at a “mobile inland drilling unit,” which is a rig used to drill exploration and development wells. The Coast Guard says the rig is not leaking at this time, but as a precaution it has deployed 500 feet of containment boom around it.
