I have been visiting the Local EOC here in Hancock County MS trying to keep up to date on the Response to the Oil Spill.

With the chemicals used they are more damaging to the enviroment then the actual Oil is.

I will keep ATS Posted from here in South MS Regarding this Story.

I did not see that forum but it is breaking news. This will be worse for LA, MS, AL, FL in the future. Just wait until hurricane season! Blobs will be washing up all over the marshes and the beaches.
