Anyone with access to a TV or Internet connection can see live footage of the millions of gallons of oil gushing into the Gulf of Mexico. It is an unbelievable spectacle but hard to put into perspective until you see the breadth of the oil spill on a map. It is nearly 50 miles out at sea but the devastation is horrific and will be felt for years to come.
Type in your own address to “move” the oil spill to your location to understand the impact in your area. I happen to live on the coast of Lake Erie and the spill is already bigger than the entire area of this Great Lake. Mind boggling to say the least.
