Coast Guard stops the use of large vacuums to suck up oil

BURAS, LA (WAFB) - Gov. Bobby Jindal is in Plaquemines Parish to check on vacuum barge operations.

He is upset with the Coast Guard because it pulled the plug on that type of cleanup effort.

Officials ordered the use of those barges be stopped Wednesday until more tests can be done on the giant vacuums.

Workers had been using them to suck up the oil in the Gulf.
