A flood of oil.


A fuel truck delivered 397 gallons of oil to the home of Nyoka Young in New Windsor, New York. The problem was that Young did not order the oil, and in fact has no oil tank. She was not home at the time, so the delivery man pumped the oil into a nonworking fill pipe from a previous tank, flooding the basement. It was an address mistake. Young and her son are staying in a hotel while the oil company pays for a cleanup. Young has been trying to sell the house, which may be difficult now. Link -via Arbroath

This, unfortunately, is something that happens somewhere in the northeast every winter. My understanding is that usually they end up having to tear the house down and physically remove the oil-soaked earth beneath the house, truck in new fill and start over again. Fortunately, oil companies carry insurance for these sorts of things.
