Dangerous Waters

Posted on: May 4, 2010

I’m sure you have heard about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  Well if you haven’t heres a brief summery of what happened, a fire occurred and the oil rig exploded which cause the pipe underneath the rig to leak 5,000 feat below.  The oil has gained ground since then, no one could imagine that it might actually reach us. On the contrary, the oil has gained more ground than expected, turtles have died an showed up on shore with no positive signs towards the businesses on Anna Maria Island.  The reason the oil has gained so much ground was because of the Atlantic ocean current, the oil drifted enough in reach of the current bringing it towards Bradenton.  Many people will be affected by this if it does happen, if it does there will be no fishing, terrible stench along the shore, and devastating business owners on the beach.  We all should pray that this oil does not reach land.
