Storm threatens to disrupt BP oil-siphoning
HOUSTON (Reuters) – With a storm threatening to disrupt oil-siphoning efforts at BP Plc's blown-out Gulf of Mexico well, the U.S. Coast Guard on Friday said collection efforts would be suspended five days before the forecast onset of gale-force winds.
A tropical disturbance over the western Caribbean could deal a big setback to efforts by BP to contain oil gushing from the well, estimated by the U.S. government at up to 60,000 barrels (2.5 million gallons/9.5 million liters) per day.
Well, I wasn't thinking 'OH SH*T' until I read your article. LOL. I hate to even think of what a huge storm could do to this oil spill. So far we haven't had much of an impact on the coast off of TX. A big storm could change that. Off to check out NOAA. Thanks a lot, Mancos. ;o)
