Oil Spill update---containment boom on St. Joe Beach

Just to let everybody know...........BP is assembling 3,000 ft of containment boom along St Joe Beach. They are laying it alongside the beach in preparation to stretch it out from St. Joe Beach to the Cape to protect the bay. This is just in case the oil heads our way--------RIGHT NOW IT IS NOT PREDICTED TO COME THIS FAR AT ALL.

I attended the Bay County Commission meeting Monday and the Director of the EOC (Emergency Management center) said that it coming to Panama City Beaches is a REMOTE possibility. BP is really spending a lot of money to stay ahead of the game and be prepared for any worst case scenario. What they don't understand is that this preparation is also causing undue fear that our beaches are in imminent danger. And, of course, this is far from true.

The oil is still nowhere near Panama City Beach, Mexico Beach, Cape San Blas, Port St. Joe. Our beaches are beautiful. You just about have to put on sunglasses its so sparkly white!!!!!!!

Don't hesitate to call me if you have any questions!!
