NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Some Southern California beaches are getting gooed.

The Orange County Register (https://bit.ly/1RUv7sH ) says balls of tar have been washing up at Newport and Huntington beaches in the past few days.

The balls in Huntington Beach are about 2 inches in diameter.

Newport Beach lifeguard Battalion Chief Brent Jacobsen says the tar ranges from the size of a quarter to the size of a hand.

He says it’s from natural offshore seepage - not an oil spill.



To get rid of tar on feet, Jacobsen says try a little mineral oil or baby oil.
