Oil Spill Teams Keep Eye on Tropical Storm

Ad Feedback

As crews continue to work on containing oil in the Gulf of Mexico, meteorologists are now monitoring a tropical disturbance that could be headed in their direction.

Currently, the low pressure system is moving slowly between Honduras and Jamaica, but the storm has the potential to develop into the first tropical depression of the Atlantic season.

U.S. Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said Friday that any storm headed towards the region should cause concern. Crews working to stop the oil spill could be forced to evacuate.

BP would also need about five days to move its equipment out of the way, including ships processing oil being sucked to the surface.

Meanwhile, a section of the famous Pensacola Beach in Florida has been closed. More globs of oil have been washing ashore on the sandy white beaches.
