For all of you who knows their geography, you know that Jacksonville is on the eastern side of the Florida peninsula... that means oil has reached the US eastern coast... it entered the oceans streams...

It's now just a matter of time before it reaches Europe.

USF official: Traces of oil within few miles of Jacksonville


Traces of oil from the gusher in the Gulf of Mexico have traveled all the way to within a few miles of the Jacksonville and Cuba coastlines, a University of South Florida official said this morning.

"Some of the tar balls may start showing up on the east coast as far as Jacksonville,'' Bill Hogarth, dean of the College of Marine Science at USF, told members of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association in a telephone conference call.

Really? Whoa. Man that's a lot faster than they projected, isn't it? Damnit Jacksonville means Georgia soon too. This really sucks.

Ugh!!! I knew it was only a matter of time, but this is still deeply disturbing to hear. Maybe more people will take notice when tarballs begin popping up in NYC

I thought I heard it was on the western side of Florida.

I'm surprised it hasn't hit the Bahama's yet. It's only a matter of time. They depend on nice clean beaches for tourism. They lose that they are gonna hurt big time.

What do you mean by "it"? Jacksonville? Or do you mean the oil?

Maybe MSM has been keeping us in the dark about the severity of the spill. I have shivers running up my spine just thinking about the implications.

I live in Tallahassee and if this is true then this is some crazy #. Jacksonville is on the opposite coast and for it to get that far north on the eastern coast would be a bad sign. I would hope some people could gather more proof and if this is true, spread the news enough to get more attention from the general public. I actually want to visit some beaches around my area to see if anything is going on around here but I don't exactly have the money to travel around that much.

Howdy folks:

pretty new here, but my family took a vacation to Deerfield Beach two weeks ago. On the flight home (out of Miami Int. airport) my mom took some photos and captured what I believe to be oil.

Awesome, that will be interesting to see what you come up with!

I keep feeling like i've lost a family member or something, even though i've never seen the gulf and have lived in Michigan for most of my life. I feel for all of the gulf states having to deal with this nightmare


It's not just some water and some sand and a couple fish getting messed up....every living creature in the gulf and all the people in the world are losing a whole BUNCH of unique and beautiful environments, hundreds of miles of pristine beaches.....hopefully we can get this mess under control, but i'll be damned if i don't feel like it's never going to be the same again.

i live in alabama and our local news is saying the beaches are losing alot of money from the oil and that fishermen are losing thousands from the crash of the fish industry.

and also what are the gov and bp doing to stop the oil now?

I live in Cape Canaveral area how in the heck does it go to Jacksonville first?

A couple of weeks ago I read on a thread that a guy in Miami was washing his car and noticed small droplets of oil left behind. I guess it evaporated and fell as rain. If so - this sucks Bigtime!

It is simple really... The Gulf stream actually loops around Florida. It is possible and likely that the spill is already off the coast of North Carolina.

I explain it here
http://(nolink)/2010/06/15/bp-gulf-oil-spill-gulf-stream-hit-north-carolina-beaches-day/




BP Gulf Oil Spill Is Already In Gulf Stream And May Hit North Carolina Beaches Any Day



Scientists confirmed concentrations of oil in the Gulf Stream back on June 9th and satellite images show oil may have entered the Florida Straight as early as may 23rd.

Based on a simulation of the Gulf Stream that means that oil is already off the coast of North Carolina.

Wow, Jacksonville is a long way from the point of the gusher. This is really bad news. Suggests there is much more in the Gulf, than people are being led to believe.
