Oil Inching Closer to Florida

June 3rd, 2010 by flanews

Like a slow motion nightmare oil from a busted pipe in the Gulf of Mexico keeps creeping closer and closer to Florida.

Its been spotted as close as six miles off the coast of Pensacola. The Governor and cabinet officials toured the area again today. Attorney General Bill McCollum says BP doesnt have enough resources in Florida to respond to the slick hitting our coast.

Im very concerned that the equipment that is here and available for immediate use, isnt really in Florida. There are some booming materials here, but the skimmers and all have been diverted elsewhere and are not immediately postured to help us. I think, we are vulnerable at any moment to seeing a lot of oil coming this way, said McCollum

Floridas beaches are still clean, but oil could wash up in Pensacola as early as tomorrow.
