Oil Spill Spread Around 200-Mile Radius

••• The oil pouring into the Gulf of Mexico has spread around a 200-mile radius from a fractured well, but has broken into thousands of small spills, a top U.S. official says.

‘This spill is just aggregated over a 200-mile radius around the wellbore, where it’s leaking right now, and it’s not a monolithic spill,’ Admiral Thad Allen, in charge of the U.S. operation against the leak, said on Sunday.
‘It is literally hundreds of thousands of smaller spills,’ he told ABC News television This Week program, adding that the ribbons of oil floating in the Gulf complicate the offshore fight to stop the leak from hitting the coastline.

‘It’s an insidious war, because it’s attacking, you know, four states one at a time, and it comes from different directions depending on the weather,’ Allen said.
