NEW ORLEANS - It has been about two and a half years since the BP oil spill in the gulf.

It was the largest oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry, and we are still seeing some of its remnants.

Hurricane Isaac stirred up the waters and pushed tar balls ashore in parts of Jefferson Parish.

EPA administrator Lisa Jackson affirms that her agency will keep close watch on BP's clean-up efforts.

On Tuesday, U.S. Senator David Vitter will hold a briefing on the status of BP's clean-up in the gulf.

He joined us Tuesday with more information.
