There are now reports of an oil sheen just offshore of Cuba. This implies the oil has reached the southeastern extent of the loop current and could continue east through the Florida straights.
The University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science and the Ocean Circulation Group and jointly produce a computer model that predicts the path of the oil spill. The latest run clearly shows the oil moving southeastward and pushing up against the current. This could lead to more oil entering the current over the next few days. …
The flow out of the loop current is not completely shut off and will likely never do so.
The entrance region comes in from the southwest Caribbean while the current exits the Gulf of Mexico past the Florida Keys and through the Florida Straights. It is not completely shut off, but the "head" or northern most part of the loop current has begun to take on more of a circular shape than the normal upside down "U" shape.

I've posted this on other threads, but this is a forecast model by USF. I think it just tracks areas of high density though and not lower densities. It's been pretty interesting to look at.

I think you will find out with time that there isn't actually a leaking well from BP. I am guessing that they opened the well up to create this "Leak" because the sea floor has craked open and dumped billions of gallons of oil into the Gulf. I say this because BP, Halliburton, and Transocean have acted with impunity. This could only happen if they are helping rather than the cause.
From the other threads about sea temps rising 7 degrees in a year, lava, gas etc it really does look like this is a caldera that is about to blow. Mexico and Cuba are saying nothing because they know what is coming and are dealing with preparing to help there people, where as Obama is only concerned with GOLF! and Haywood just wants to hide on his boat.
TELL THE F*CKING TRUTH! - if this is the end of America and that is why you are being nice to the Mexicans say so and everyone will be nice to them. If Yellowstone is about to blow TELL US. Give the people of the USA some credit; if we know what is going on I do not think it will result in anarchy. It will though if you don't start to tell the truth!
