Another Hurricane Season Is Just Around the Corner, Yet St Bernard Parish Residents fear the Murphy Oil Meraux Refinery is ill prepared.
Two not uncommon rain events in 2009 illustrate the problem, as one event in June '09 flooded a neighborhood and the other event in December '09 discharged oil in another neighborhood canal.

What- if anything- is being done in the next 60 days to protect the community during tropical weather and hurricanes ? Should a corporation be allowed to operate without the capacity to handle rain ?

June 2009 Event around four minute mark....
