The Gulf Coast… Waiting for Hurricane!

the last few days on the Gulf of Mexico’s coast have been waiting for a hurricane’s arrival. The oil spill unraveling in the Gulf of Mexico has put cities and towns across the region on edge, even as officials scramble for solutions. The governor of Louisiana, Bobby Jindal, has proposed pumping sand into the Gulf to extend the Barrier Islands that have historically protected his state’s coast. Florida’s legislature may hold a special legislative session and consider a ban on drilling on the state’s waters.
