New State Website for Updated Oil Spill Information
State Launches Website for Up-to-Date Information on Oil Spill
Attorney General Bill McCollum today launched a website to provide Floridians with a central location to obtain information about the state’s response to the Deepwater Horizon incident and the oil spill approaching Florida’s coastline. The website, http://myfloridalegal.com/deepwaterhorizon, includes current maps and projections for the oil spill’s location and potential movement, as well as information citizens can use to protect themselves from fraud and the hotline number for filing recovery claims.
“Our citizens need as much information as possible so they can participate in the clean-up operations, prepare for any impact that may affect them, their businesses, and their families, and recover any losses this disaster may cause,” said McCollum.
