Little threat here from oil spill

Scientists say it will be at least two weeks before any surface oil from the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is carried northward by a loop current to merge into the Gulf Stream off the coast of Georgia. Because the continental shelf stretches 75 miles off Georgia's shore, it is unlikely any oil will show up on area beaches or be washed into the state's fragile coastal marshes, according to experts at the Skidaway Institute of Oceanography.

A hurricane making landfall west of the spill could drive the oil inland with surging seawater to the north and northeast. Forecasters don't know what kind of environmental hazards to expect, though, because sizable oil spills are rare in the main hurricane breeding grounds.
