By now, everyone is aware of the Deepwater Horizon tragedy and its potential impact to Northwest Florida. Weather patterns continue to be favorable for Okaloosa Island Beaches forcing the oil spill to remain south and west of our area.
We should all stay apprised of this situation but as of now our beaches remain as beautiful as they always have. Local residents, businesses, and tourists are becoming more and more optimistic the preventive measures taken by the government lead professionals and countless local volunteers will be successful.
We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as they become available.
