Florida, do not wait because the oil will eventually make it to the Western
shores. Again do not wait to have crisis management at the last minute. Start
by putting out the barriers now and bring in the skimmers and post them in
multiple lines of defense from the North to the South of the State.
Do not become complacent and say oh my gosh it is happening so move now
before the Federal government wonders what happened. The oil will cost Florida
as well as the other Gulf states untold Billions upon Billions of dollars of lost
revenue. You think we are in a recession now if the tourism drys up to nothing
so does the lively hood of most of the population in Florida and we will be drastically
affected economically. Yes the other Gulf States will be affected beyond belief
also but Florida is a Peninsula and if the Gulf currents take it on the East
Coast of Florida Billions of more Dollars will be lost in tourism. Not to
mention the untold wildlife and fish that will be affected and killed. ^Y^
