Oil Spill Info for Northwest Florida now online at

To assist local residents as well as our friends and neighbors across the Florida Panhandle and the many tourists and business people who visit our region each year, we have now added daily updates on how the oil spill is affecting Northwest Florida.

In addition to the complete daily update being released by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, we are also posting updates on tourism, fishing, wildlife, beach conditions and more.

The first impacts of the massive leak off the coast of Louisiana hit the beaches of Northwest Florida today, leading to fishing advisories for Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa and Walton Counties, including Pensacola Beach, Fort Walton Beach, Navarre and Destin. Conditions are expected to worsen and spread over coming days.
