Deepwater Horizon Slick Doubles in Size

According to CNN:

“The oil spill from a leaking well beneath the sunken rig in the Gulf of Mexico doubled in size Tuesday, spreading to 3,360 square miles, according to the Coast Guard (MZ Note – One other media source states this is larger than the state of Delaware).

The slick is located about 36 miles from the Louisiana coast. It is growing larger as an estimated 42,000 gallons of oil a day continues to spew into Gulf waters.”

MZ – Still no reports of affected wildlife, just the five whales that transited the waters yesterday.

Stay tuned…
