The oil spot continues spreading

In brief: Everyday from destroyed pipe in the sea comes out about 200 tons of oil.

The Gulf of Mexico suffers of ecological disaster. The floating oil platform burst and sank there a week ago continues spreading. There are victims: 120 workers were saved while the fate of 11 is still unknown.

Everyday from destroyed pipe in the sea comes out about 200 tons of oil. The US coastguard burned the spot of oil in order to prevent contamination of the coast. Now the oil spot is coming close to the delta of Mississippi river. There is no success in stopping leakage of oil from floating oil platform. The works are being provided on 1.5 km deep in the sea.
