The State Column
June 28, 2010
Mississippi Haley Barbour has announced that oil has hit the shores of Mississippi. In a statement sent out late Sunday night, Mr. Barbour acknowledged that oil has begun washing up on the shore of Mississippi.
The governor said most of the oil is concentrated between Ocean Springs and Gautier. He also noted that oil has been found at booms protecting Biloxi Bay, which is now closed to boat traffic.
Mr. Barbour noted that, “The amount of oil moving into Mississippi waters has greatly increased in the last several days,” and “We continue to press the Federal Unified Command and BP to increase the amount of resources available to attack the oil….”
The Mississippi governor took a chance to point out his disappointment over the federal government’s response to the disaster.
