Won't do anything to a hurricane. BUT it will sure be a bigger mess if we don't get that mess cleaned up before one moves into the area.

So far the wind directions have kept a great deal of the spill corralled. Except for the product that appeared on Chandelier Island and Dauphin Island.

Oil impact on the hurricane won't be much, but the impact a major hurricane could have on the coast could be large depending on where the hurricane traverses. If it is west of the leak, it would drive a lot of the oil toward the coast, and if there is surge it could leave oil on land, which then could become a fire risk on top of everything else.

If it were to the east, it would tend to drive away the oil from the coast and disperse it more.
