South East State Officials Set Up Toll Free For Oil Spill

As the massive oil spill moves throughout the Gulf Of Mexico toward the Florida keys, response agencies have mobilized to establish a plan which includes a toll free phone number to help monitor the path of the oil. The states have set up toll free numbers for residents to call if they see oil-stained wildlife or oil on the shore. For wildlife, call (866) 557-1401. For shore sitings, call (866) 448-5816.

Efforts to install a concrete cover to catch oil leaking from the drill site, 5,000 feet below the surface, are under way. But if that maneuver fails, the leak could continue to release 210,000 gallons of oil into the gulf each day.
