Taylor says oil closest to MS is threatening Cat Island

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Congressman Gene Taylor, who flew out over the oil spill this morning, says it looked a little bit better than when he was out last week.

That's because Taylor says the closest oil to South Mississippi shores was a blotch about 35 miles from Cat Island. He attributes that to the disbursement being put on the spill and the winds.

Congressman Taylor says the disappointing thing is that the oil has moved closer to the mouth of the Mississippi River. Hear more from the congressman later today on WLOX News.
