Thank you! It is just scary because they say one thing, then you go look at the feeds, and it looks just the opposite of what they are saying. This would never have happened if they would have followed safety procedures....that is what I am so mad about. There were some kind of braces they use on the BOP....the standard was to use 21 of them.....they only used SIX. They also had the alarms turned off so it wouldn't disturb the guys who were sleeping!

Way to go Kat! I feel the same way and I'm sure that others do, too.

Check NOAA's new forecast for the gulf. Possible Cyclone from the remants of that last storm.
Also, not to ignore your post... I'm pissed too, but I'm not sure WHO I'm pissed at so refraining from jumping the guy and targeting the wrong person, co., etc... too many unanswered questions at this point. I totally agree with you about the feeds quality. It was much better when I first starting viewing it. I wonder if the number of people watching it would affect the quality of it? Not a computer person, so I don't know.
P.S. I'm in Bama... but further North... I've definitely been following the livefeed discussion and I do appreciate you guys hanging in there day after day (even though you are getting crappy views!)
Oh, and I wondered after reading the NOAA update what the difference was between a cyclone and a hurricane... From googling, I see that cyclone typically forms in other oceans and travels clockwise. Is it odd for a cyclone to form in the GOM? I don't know yet... Will google some more tomorrow.
But keep in mind, this is Alabama news so someone may have just used the wrong word. : )
