I believe that is one of their (I would hope) main concerns.  The newscast said it is more likely than not that this reaches land.

 

 

I can't wait to hear what Obama has to say after his little shtick about more drilling.

I wonder what the impact would be on peak trans-gulf migration considering the size of the slick. Late migrating species might take a big hit. I also wonder if fumes are emitted from the slick. Perhaps there are no fumes from unprocessed crude ... ? Perhaps this seems like an absurd idea but I read it was actually done once before.
