Neighbors Confront Exxon Officials Over Arkansas Dilbit Spill

Apr 1, 2013
(KTHV for CBS News )

Exxon Oil is in the news again for a large oil spill.  This time, in Arkansas.

Most of the frustration Sunday over the oil spill in Mayflower, Arkansas centered around confusion over who is under a mandatory evacuation.

Also resale values and whether the neighborhood impacted will forever be branded by this spill.  What started as a calm meeting between residents and Exxon officials got heated at times.

It was not the holiday weekend Mayflower resident Ryan Senia envisioned.

"Basically if it doesn't fit in our car we don't have it right now," said  Senia.

His once ideal home on South Starlite Road sits vacant as oil fumes permeate the air.
