Well Blowout Being Monitored

Reported by KPLC Staff

Cameron Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness Officials are looking into a well blowout about 3 miles East of Oakgrove.

There is currently no major threat to the public. Right now the well is blowing heated salt water and some gas mixture. The well is not burning as Wild Well Control Inc. among other contractors are working to plug the well.

OEP officials urge residents in this area to watch local TV and listen to local radio stations for any updates.
