Here is a brief video shot last night in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. The South Walton Beaches are still being impacted by oil.
Nearly a year into the disaster and our beaches have not even been mapped for tarmat removal. Crews are poorly equipped and only allowed to surface clean or break up the oil. No health notices are posted and no official from the state or county health department has even been present at any public meeting regarding the disaster. This is not acceptable.
Contact any public official and tell then you want the tarmats removed. Tell them you want the oil removed. Tell them you want a health official to advise people as to how to reduce their exposure.
