Mexico Beach, St. Joe Beach, Port St. Joe, Cape San Blas
We continue to be on the lookout for but HAVE NOT SEEN ANY EFFECTS OF THE OIL SPILL. Our beaches are beautiful and clean and being enjoyed everyday by lots of locals as well as vacationers! The Fishing is great, the water warm.........
We pray for Louisiana as it is reaching land there. However, I took the following bullet points directly from the Deepwater Horizon releases.
I will continue to keep you updated!
I've also included the most recent trajectory map which shows, sadly, the oil is now on shore in Louisiana.
• Winds/currents continue to keep the plume away from the Florida coast for at least the next 72 hours.
• At this time, there are no plans to use dispersants in Florida. If dispersants are ever considered in state waters, the determination to use the chemical would be evaluated by DEP with input from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's Florida Wildlife Research Institute and EPA.
• The fisheries, wildlife and seafood off of Florida’s coast in state waters are safe and there are no alerts at this time. Press Release Florida saltwater fishing regulations remain in effect as usual. Learn more at www.MyFWC.com/Fishing.
• Currently, there are no impacts to Florida’s more than 1,260 miles of coastline and 825 miles of sandy beaches.
• Through www.VISITFLORIDA.com, vacationers are able to view live Twitter feeds and read up-to-the-minute information on the status of any city or region in Florida. Learn more at http://www.visitflorida.com/florida_travel_advisory/.
• The Florida State Parks website, http://www.floridastateparks.org, will be updated daily and will list any parks that may be impacted. Visitors with camping or cabin reservations will be notified if their stay will be impacted. Learn more by calling 1-850-245-2157.
Please don't hesitate to call me if you should have any other concerns. Please do not cancel vacation plans----we will be the first to tell you to cancel if the oil comes this way!!!
