Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill

On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, killing eleven workers, injuring others and spilling massive amounts of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. The leak continued until July 15. Since we vacation on the gulf, we were concerned about the leak affecting our stay. We went to Seagrove Beach as planned, and while we saw some oil, and workers removing it, we still  had a good vacation and continue to visit Seagrove each summer.
