The wind worked in favor of keeping the oil away from shore today.  BP oil company says they will be ready to drop the housing, called a contaiment dome, over the leak Thursday.  They will hook the dome up to a ship over the weekend.  About 210,000 gallons have gushed per day since the rig exploded killing 11 workers.  With hurricane season just a month away, workers are working as quickly as possible to clean up what they can.  The spill will likely take weeks to contain and clean.  Here you’ll see the oil on top of the water, and why it’s so dangerous to animals.
