BP Oil Spill And Its effect along the Florida Coast Update
BP Oil Spill and it's effect along the Florida Coast Update.
BP Oil Spill and it's effect along the Florida Coast Update. On October 17th 2010. Assending to NOAA [National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration] nearly 7,000 square miles of waters of the Gulf of Mexico are reopened for fishing. This is the 9th reopening in Federal waters since July 22nd of 2010. Claims are those waters can once again support sustainable fishing activities. Since April 20th this year, life among the Florida Coast has not been the same. Since the Oil Spill peoples lives and way of life have been affected. The Oil flowed into the gulf for 85 days and released 185 million gallons of oil. The effects of this spill have mounted into the millions. BP has yet to make everything right, with those effected by this spill. This is the worst ecological oil spill in history to date. Most places along the Florida Coast still look like a ghost town. Some Business Owners have been forced to close their doors or cut back on their staff or change their hours of operation. Pensacola Beach still has oil in and on the beach as well as in the water.Bp has made efforts to clean the beach up. BP claims to have paid $3 million dollars in claims to date, for lost Businesses. Those of us who are here along the Florida Coast have seen the effects first hand. We don't see much of a change at this time. If BP makes every effort in the book to cotrol this situation. The fact still remains that we have been effected as well as our way of life. This spill should have never happened.
The last day to file your claim was November 23rd 2010. For those who didn't make the claim cut off date. Don't worry you can still file your claim. You must file your claim on line. Go to this web address. The address is www.Gulf Coast Claims Facility.com.
The web site tells you. If you missed the deadline to file a claim for Emergency Advance Payments. You may file a claim for Interim Payment for past damages. You may also file a claim for final payment for past and future damages. The web site is very easy to use. It walks you through step by step. We still don't know the long term effects of this oil spill. Until we feel safe again. I feel that this responsibility lies with British Petroleum to make things right. Those of you who may be expecting a check may have to wait till January. Thats the latest that i have heard that checks will be written out.
I will provide future updates as they become available.
