The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is on the move, the Environmental News Network reports. Currently caught in the Loopt, a clockwise current that originates in the Caribbean and travels along the Yucatan, the oil spill will likely travel up to the tip of Florida before getting picked up by the Gulf Stream and carried along the eastern seaboard to the North Atlantic by mid-July. This prediction is based on a computer model designed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research.
