The latest facts, stats, pictures and maps for the BP oil spill, its size, its impacts on wildlife, and the efforts at containment and cleanup in the Gulf of Mexico.
The explosion of the Transocean Deepwater Horizon rig on April 20 killed 11 people and led to the BP oil spill — the largest in U.S. history — that threatens coastal Louisiana, Gulf Coast fisheries, Gulf of Mexico ecosystems, and perhaps the East Coast, as the spill reaches the loop current.
Here, you’ll find updates about the impacts to animals, fish, birds and seafood in the Gulf of Mexico, about the efforts at containment and cleanup, facts about the oil leak’s size, as well as pictures, video, maps and more.
You’ll also find information about how to help, and about individuals who have dedicated their lives to protecting the oceans from just such a disaster.
The Size of the Spill
5,000 to 60,000 barrels a day: Rate at which oil is leaking from the Deepwater Horizon rig. Some experts now believe that original estimates of 5,000 barrels a day (that’s 210,000 gallons) were way off. And BP says that it’s likely that the leak rate is around 60,000 barrels (2.5 million gallons) a day. (Source: Los Angeles Times)
19 million to 39 million gallons: Amount of oil leaked into the Gulf of Mexico in the month since the Deepwater Horizon spill. (Source: Huffington Post)
11,300 miles: The distance around the world the current amount of leaked oil would stretch if it was placed in milk jugs lined up side by side. To quantify, that’s farther than New York to Buenos Aires, Argentina, and back. (Source: New York Times)
102: The number of school gymnasiums that could theoretically be filled floor-to-ceiling with oil from the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. (Source: New York Times)

If your bird loves and trust you he should be fine. Make sure the bird can see you but try to sheild him from looking out the window. There will be stress. We take our birds riding with us so they are use to everything around the moves in a car. Truck is louder.
Take him on trial runs in your car first. Might help
I am planning a baby shower! I’m hoping to find a nice place within metairie, kenner, or new orleans to hold it. I really just want a place with a room to hold up to 50 guests, and a place which allows me to control the decorating and the food (i don’t like paying ridiculous amounts of money to eat the same kind of food I could cook and bring!).
If you know of any places that would be good to contact, please let me know! As of right now, budget is not an issue.
Every large hotel and many smaller hotels offer meeting/banquet space for rent. There are also stand-alone options like the Jefferson-Orleans (though their minimum is 150 guests): http://jeffersonorleans.com/
You might also consider holding the shower at the Zoo or at City Park, both of which have meeting/banquet facilities, a family-friendly environment, and free parking.
I find Louisiana is. Not as hot as Flordia in the summer and very few freezing nights in the winter.?
Great hospitals, plenty of outdoor sports, no traffic and our taxes are not bad.
Louisiana is the new Florida. Haven’t been in NO in about two years, but stats show population growing by leaps and bounds. Rest of state is likely going to have a boom in the next decade.
As to reason for better weather, it is in the middle of the Gulf Stream and gets a lot of heat in the winter from that stream passing by it. In the summer, winds move moisture to north into central and southern US.
Gulf Stream heats southern US and Florida, as well as East Coast and Nova Scotia and then heats northern Europe so it is inhabitable all year round.
Not the place to be in hurricane, but that is not a deterrent to most who live or settle there. Culture is fantastic. Perfect mix of people if you like to meet and know new people. Very friendly too.
Hope the climate info helps and the personal observations didn’t hinder.

"Zydeco is a form of American roots or folk music, that evolved from the jure during the late 1800’s call and response vocal music of the black and multiracial French speaking Creoles of south and southwest Louisiana."
"Cajun music, an emblematic music of Louisiana, is rooted in the ballads of the French-speaking Catholics of Canada."
I am president of French culture. the topic this week is Louisiana. i was wandering if there were anything cool to know about culture like Mardi Gras.
