Its a HOAX.
The original 'article' is old and has already been discussed / debunked at ATS (with its own thread even). It's absurd for multiple reasons. For one thing they don't evacuate over oil. They didn't in Tampa Bay's old fuel oil spill, they haven't evacuated anything in this new one (where they are getting directly hit by the oil). Do we not know how these things work?

Can anyone post a story at Before It's News?
Yes. You'll need an account and a good story, that's all -- it's completely free to post (except for promotional stories, which have a modest fee for posting).
Mexico’s Pemex oil spill was much Worse than BP oil spill so Far
There are plans to evacuate people with respiratory problems, especially those among the retired senior population along the west coast of Florida, before officials begin burning surface oil as it begins to near the coastline.
