Oil Spill Preparation

Here in Ocean Springs Mississippi, the city and its people are making extra preparation to keep away the crude oil from the shoreline. The fatal explosion of an oil rig off the coast of Louisiana last April 20, 2010 gives a total blow in the fishing industry and eco-tourism industry in the Gulf Coast. This BOOM is just a prevention and hoping that it will work for good. We saw Mayor Moran today in the Beach area with some news men facilitating the group of volunteers who are on standby for clean up on the shoreline.
It is high tide earlier and it brought some dirt from the from the sea. The volunteers clean up the trash to avoid contamination of the area. The smell of the crude oil was so strong that some say might trigger illness. Residents were advised to stay indoor. At this moment, it is a " wait and see" kind' a mood for all of the people here in Gulf Coast. We are hoping that the oil will not move this far towards our area.
