Woman Sues Longview Over Oil Flooding

      A woman who's home was turned into an oily mess, is now suing the city of Longview and other companies for damages. The home of Leila Letourneau was flooded with oil in February after a saltwater line, mistakenly hooked into a sewer line, backed up spurting the black goo into her home.

      A lawsuit claims the city was negligent in connecting the sewage and saltwater lines. It also claims four other companies failed to discover the problem. Letourneau is seeking unspecified damages for her home and possessions.
