The oil plume is over 125 miles from Panama City, so a little farther than that from Mexico Beach! The winds are now blowing it westward, away from us again.
The huge news, of course, is the well has stopped gushing and the relief wells, which is the permanent solution, are ahead of schedule!
There is a tropical wave near Puerto Rico, which we are keeping an eye on. Hopefully it won't turn into a tropical depression and cause a lot of wind and wave action to move the oil plume our way.
As of right now---for this coming weekend-----we are beautiful! Open for business, sugar white sand and blue green water!!!!
