[ARCHIVED] Fort Myers Beach is Still Pristine and Oil Free!

Our beaches and the rest of SW Florida have not been impacted and will have minimal or no direct impact from the Gulf oil spill. Recent projections by the US Government indicate the probability of oil impacting our destination is less than 1 percent. The Loop Current in the Gulf of Mexico follows the edge of the continental shelf, which runs parallel to the state's coast and extends to about 150 miles off the destination's shores. When the strong current hits the shelf, it curves southward along its edge. So, barring a major storm, it will steer the Loop Current away from our area and well offshore of Southwest Florida.
