Gulf Oil Spill Coast Guard Activity June 3 2010

Real Estate Agent with REI (Real Estate International, Inc.)

"We are moving critical response assets across all the Gulf Coast states in preparation for potential near- and long-term oil impacts. In Alabama, the Coast Guard Cutter Cypress arrived in Mobile Bay today to protect Dauphin Island from the north and west. Tomorrow, we will commence a surge of boom to Alabama's Katrina Pass that will be positioned to create a funnel to collect oil that comes in with the tide. Additionally, we have deployed four coastal patrol boats to coordinate response in Alabama's coastal waters.

Four helicopters are being deployed to the Alabama, Mississippi and Florida coast to provide surveillance information to help skimmers position their efforts strategically to collect the most oil threatening the shore possible. The Coast Guard Cutter Tampa has a flight deck that will allow for these helicopters to refuel offshore, and the Coast Guard Cutter Elm is currently in the area off the coast of Pensacola, Fla., working around the clock to skim oil from the surface."  The source for this information is the website for the US Coast Guard.

So, so sad -- wish they could fix this faster.

Exactly--the problem was that in order to save the almighty dollar, BP and MMS put us all at dire risk, which has come true. We can't even wrap our brain around the long term as well as short term effects of this. Washington is a mess, and a pox on both their houses!! And we need inspections of everything that is out there, because there are other catastrophes awaiting--it's just a matter of time!
