BP Oil Spill

Lately we have been getting a lot of requests for the BP Oil Spill video feed. This feed is currently being streamed using a video format that is not compatible with Live Cams. There are however several cameras included in the public lists that may show the effects of oil arriving on the shoreline in the Gulf region. Check the beach cameras and look for the Gulf Shores feeds (as well as any from the Alabama coast). Tar balls have been reportedly found in the past few days and they will likely increase in frequency as this disaster continues.

Keep in mind that the cameras and bandwidth expenses are owned by the businesses that are being affected by this disaster. Many restaurants and businesses along the coast are being shut down or downsized due to the impact on the tourism industry. If there is anything you can do to help them (financially or otherwise) we urge you to do so.
