Post Tracking the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill using Google Earth

We have talked about some of the resources that you can use to track the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Another tracking tool that you can use if Google Earth. Hopefully the new containment dome will work, which will take care of about 85% of the oil that is spewing out. Then they can work on the second leak and solve that problem.
On April 20, 2010, an explosion occurred on the semi-submersible offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 rig workers and injuring 17 others. On April 24, it was found that the wellhead was damaged and was leaking oil into the Gulf. This significant spill poses a serious threat to wildlife, affecting as many as 400 species along the coastal areas of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida.
