Resident Photos and News on Mayflower Arkansas Exxon Oil Spill

Local residents in the Mayflower, AK area are saying that authorities are denying press access to different areas of the town, not allowing the media to see the full extent of the Exxon oil spill. Photos are beginning to go viral of Exxon's crude oil from Canada flowing into yards in what seems to be an uncontrolled on-land spill. Here is a photo below:

The leak has caused the evacuation of about 22 homes in the area, but photos like this show that some areas are either not being evacuated, or were not evacuated soon enough. Exxon has stated that it believes this to be 10,000 barrels of oil leaking from the pipeline that carries 90,000 barrels a day.
