Day 95 The Bonnie Situation

LiveScience | What Will Happen to Gulf Oil if Bonnie Strikes?

What happens will depend in part on which way the wind blows.

That means a tropical storm or hurricane passing to the west of the oil slick could drive oil to the coast, while one to the east could push oil away from the coast, according to NOAA.
