July 20th Report

July 20, 2:30 p.m. – No New Tar Balls Reported; All Beaches Remain Open
Posted on July 20, 2010 by South Walton Update
All 15 of our beach communities remain open for enjoyment today and no additional reports of tar balls have come in since early morning.
Due to the light impacts over the last several weeks, the Walton County Sherriff’s office is
reporting the number of cleanup workers on the beaches is being reduced.
According to the latest NOAA
forecast, persistent ESE and E winds are expected to continue through Thursday with speeds of 10-20 kts. Satellite analysis and overflights indicate surface oil has moved west, away from the beaches.
At the urging of the Florida Department of Health, the local health department has posted Oil Impact Notices at beach access points, advising beachgoers of health tips to follow if noticeable oil product is present. Beachgoers are advised to exercise personal judgment as conditions can change quickly.
