Where is the MSM on this?

I've read that the Gulf Stream moves at an average of 4 miles per hour, or about 100 miles per day. It would appear that Ormond Beach is a bit more than 1000 miles from the Macondo.

So, in 78 days, it is possible oil and tar made it all the way to the Daytona area? You betcha, and a whole lot further too.

Of course, maybe this oil, and these dead creatures, are not caused by the BP spill.

Why is this in the dreams and predictions section?

I don't see this leak getting fixed anytime fast.

The news just ran a story that the Coast Guard was investigating tar balls that have been found on a two mile stretch of Cocoa Beach. Not far from where this article is saying the same thing. That's the east coast of Florida now.

They said the testing will take up to a week to find out if the oil is in fact from the gulf oil leak. I don't know, it isn't looking too good. Why not U2U a mod and ask them to put this in the right forum as well?

Tar Balls Wash Ashore At Cocoa Beach

More than a dozen tar balls have been found in a 2- to 3-mile stretch of Cocoa Beach during the past two days, according to Brevard County authorities. Lifeguards said some beachgoers collected the tar balls in buckets. One woman said she found one that was as big as a roof shingle. The tar balls have washed ashore at Lori Wilson Park, and also along the shore from 6th Street southward to the Cocoa Beach Pier. “I don’t like it at all. They are ruining our beaches -- even all the way up here on the East Coast,” one beachgoer said Cocoa Beach Tar Balls Kimberly Prosser, a spokeswoman for Brevard County, said the tar balls will be examined to determine if they came from the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Results are expected back within the next couple of days.
