Texas toilet starts gushing oil

Woman returns to crude-covered home

LONGVIEW, Texas - A Texas woman has struck oil — or maybe it struck her.

Leila LeTourneau returned from work late Monday to find crude oil covering her home’s floors and spilling from the toilets, bathtub and sinks.

Longview city crews and representatives from Basa Research, which owns some wells in the area, are trying to help find the source of the oil.

Local station KLTV reported one theory is that the house may have been built on an abandoned well that wasn’t properly plugged.
