Latest on the Oil Spill

As we first reported on WVUA last night, the oil spill in the Gulf may impact coastal areas sooner rather than later. A strong south flow is expected to develop over the Gulf which will drive the oil northward. The waters in our ocean are constantly on the move because of currents at the surface and below. The wind can be a big factor in driving the oil northward. Areas initially impacted may include locations near the mouth of the Mississippi River. Beyond that point the oil could make a landfall along the Gulf Coast as early as tomorrow. We will keep you posted on this huge environmental threat! In fact, tonight we will have much more regarding this oil spill. The attached image is the latest high resolution image captured by MODIS. (Source: NASA)
