Is The BP Gulf Oil Spill Raining on Florida? This Is Just The Beginning

It should be noted that this story can not be confirmed nor verified. I have chose to add it here because multiple sources have reported this incident even though they are unverifiable

2As early as May 9 it was announced that FEMA evacuation protocol for forest fires in and around Tampa, Florida could be activated at a moment’s notice in the event of the oil slick approaching Florida’s coastline. One proposal is to undergo a ‘controlled burn’ of surface oil in the Gulf to prevent the oil reaching Florida’s coast. This would result in highly toxic fumes blowing ashore. In fact, toxic fumes have already been reported elsewhere as Gulf residents complain of breathing difficulties and nausea:

Oil is semi-volatile, which means that it can evaporate into the air and create a heavy vapor that stays near the ground – in the human breathing zone. When winds whip up oily sea water, the spray contains tiny droplets – basically a fume – of oil, which are small enough to be inhaled deep into the lungs. We know that’s happening in the Gulf Coast, because people are reporting a heavy oily smell in the air. Already my colleagues in Louisiana are reporting that people in the coastal community of Venice, Louisiana are suffering from nausea, vomiting, headaches, and difficulty breathing.

The following eyewitness account came to our attention yesterday:

Hi all,

Making this quick, don’t feel well. About 4:15pm or so eastern, coming back from Tampa, Florida north on Veteran’s Expressway
