East Texas restaurants feeling effects of oil spill

HENDERSON, TEXAS (KSLA) – The impact of the Coastal Crisis is being felt all the way to East Texas.

Two businesses in Henderson County are now feeling the spill's effects. Tony Herrington started a small but busy seafood stand a few months ago. Now the stand is closed because Herrington cannot afford to buy shrimp or oysters.

Here at the Cajun Bayou seafood, they are making it but just barely. Oysters are no longer on the menu, while the price of everything else had to go up.
