Tar on Beaches Easter Weekend

Does anyone know why there was tar washed up at the beaches? I heard from a friend that on the 13th St side of Seal there were signs posted that the water was hazardous or something along those lines.  I just so happen to be at Crystal Cove and there were a few tar balls on the sand.  This is very upsetting to me, so if you know why please lmk.

Tar and tar seepage are natural parts of the environment. It is evidenced that oil, tar and gas have occurred throughout the coastlines for thousands of years, and are particularly prevalent along the California coastline due to its mountainous regions. Scientists often cannot tell the difference between oil from naturally-occurring seeps and oil from offshore spills. Along the California coastline, there is a large amount of oil seeping naturally from the rocks under the ocean. NOT TO WORRY I live here and watch the water conditions daily

use alcohol and a paper towel to remove

It very difficult to remove from your bathing suite so during these conditions I recommend swimming in the nude, much better than ruining a pair of trunks.
