Went to the beach today and made use of the ole Canon Rebel.
It looks like they pretty much covered it with an inch of sand last night and were starting to pick up the bits of oil this morning.

After

Before

Ive already called the BP hotline to put in a claim to relocate. My wife is pregnant and we live maybe 2 blocks from the beach. I may have her go stay with family if it comes in like they are saying. She has been saying the last few days how she can smell it already. Her pregnant senses are on high alert.

My job is related to this disaster and Ive been up to my neck in information gathering for the last few weeks. I can say it does not look good.


I guess when I read your post stating that you called the BP Hot Line to relocate and that your job is related to this disaster "I assumed" you worked or where contracted out by BP.........Its an easy assumption to make based on your post....

You mean they're "covering up" the tar, not cleansing it up?

That would seem odd.

It can be cleaned up first.

Fair enough.

I'm not sure if they covered it up. That was a personal observation.

Yeah it definitely looks better. I did not have to walk far to find the oil though.

And another thing its not just the oil its also the dispersant's the nasty thing you can't see.

Just seems a little suspect on how fast they removed it still i would not go in that water.

It will just keep coming until they stop this dam thing from leaking and that's not looking likely at the moment sadly.

Thankyou

Yeah I wore shoes and did not touch it. There were people walking barefoot along the water which is not smart .

I probably passed you out there, we were in the same area, I also went out near Portafino & 2nd to last parking lot before Fort Pickens.

I'm going to upload some photos & video after dinner.

I was out there around 9am. Some guy was telling me he watched them cover the oil in about an inch of sand. In this picture you can almost see the difference. Did you see the sand piles on the other side of the bridge?





This is some sort of orange chemical. The side of the truck said something like "Beach Cleanup Inc."I wonder if they were using it on the beach??

We went much later in the afternoon.
I was amazed at the difference in just one day, they had to be covering it up with fresh sand. Simply not enough workers to have removed that much oil in just one night by shovel.

And did you see what that green stuff was people were sticking there fingers in it not good.

Keep us updated thanks guys.

Thankyou

Their just throwing new sand on top of the oiled sand?
Maybe this is why their working at night, so no one sees what their really doing.

Concerning the air quality. Is their a strange smell in the air? Anyone having respiratory issues in that area?

Idea... Next time you see some idiot walking in the water, get their number. Call them a couple days later, see if they have problems from being in the water.

People doesn't get it, even with the fantasy and illusion of making the beaches look clean, the water is polluted, getting into that water right now is a health hazard and in the name of profits and money for the state tourism industry they are playing with people's health

I found a news report about the oil being covered with 1"-8" of sand.

Not sure what green stuff you are referring to, but I did notice some algae on the beach.
