Chalmette, just to the east of New Orleans. in 2005, Hurricane Katrina inundated this neighborhood with up to 12 feet of water, causing up to 1m gallons of oil to leak out of a storage tank at the nearby Murphy Oil refinery. The ensuing oil spill spread throughout the neighborhood, affecting up to 10,000 homes and forcing the relocation of thousands of people. Eventually Murphy Oil settled for $330m in a class action lawsuit. The boundary of where the water affected the homes is easy to see, and the neighborhood immediately surrounding the refinery is now open fields.
