This is an NOAA map of the Gulf Stream. Significant amounts of oil have not yet entered the Loop Current and even if they do, you can see that the Cocoa Beach area should not have a direct hit. The oil will be diluted and off shore at that point and we may see a few tar balls wash up. Certainly nothing that clean up crews can't handle. My wife went to the beach today and the water was clear and beautiful to swim in.
Some of my northern customers have fears about property values in the area being affected by the spill. To them, I say Cocoa Beach is still pristine and swimmers have nothing to worry about. It's a great place to live or visit and the spill should not have any significant impact on home prices. Come on down and stay a while!
There were some tar balls that washed up on shore about a week ago but that happens from time to time anyway and it has now been confirmed they are not from the Gulf spill according to authorities.
