GRAND ISLE — The U.S. Coast Guard is continuing to investigate patches of oil found Saturday off the Grand Isle coast.

Grand Isle Fire Chief Aubrey Chiasson confirmed this morning that the substance is oil, but officials have not determined where it came from. It is not believed to be oil left over from last year’s spill that may have been trapped in a marsh or other area,” Chiasson said.

After completing an aerial survey of the spill with Jefferson Parish John F. Young Jr. this afternoon, Chiasson said they saw patches of “light- to moderate-weathered oil” starting about three miles from the Caminada Pass in the Gulf, stretching out at least five miles. He said oil has also reached Elmer’s Island, as well as beaches in Grand Isle and Port Fourchon.

The Coast Guard said Saturday night that there is a 5-mile wide spill of some substance in the Gulf. Still, the substance will not be identified by Coast Guard testers until later this afternoon, Coast Guard Lt. Ryan Baxter said.

The National Response Center first received a report of oil at 9:34 a.m. Saturday. The report indicated a three-mile-long rainbow sheen on the surface, according to a news release from the Coast Guard. Two other reports followed, the last one reporting a sheen extending 100 miles into the Gulf.
