Oil Nearing the Coast

Oil projections from NOAA show that the oil slick could impact the beaches of Mobile and Baldwin counties by Wednesday. Fisherman are reporting the oil as close as 10-15 miles south of Dauphin Island. Oil is being reported as surface sheen and underwater globs. Southwest winds will drive the oil very close to our beaches early this week. It may be possible to smell the oil at times. Fishing is closed in Federal waters off Mobile County and parts of Baldwin County, roughtly south off Little Lagoon pass west to Louisiana. We will have more update on Fox 10 News.

    this is a far cry from the things that all people were told about off shore drilling. BP did not do their home work when they drilled this deep water well. If BP would have studied this depth a little closer WE the people would not have this problem. I am at a loss to tell the people that make their living from our waters that I am very sorry for them.all of the money that BP has will not be able to BUY 11 LIVES that they lost in the daster. GOD BLESS ALL THAT LOST A LOVED ONE .

    It seems like there is finally some good news with the spill. The Houston Chronicle reports, U.S. ships were being outfitted earlier this month with four pairs of skimming booms airlifted from the Netherlands and should be deployed within days.” I hope this is a sign of things to come. For all those feeling pretty gloomy about this situation, I recommend a good laugh… Here’s a funny joke, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dd0svVWfFbo
