NOAA's Report on Oil Catastrophe

NOAA's May 28th report shows the following:

1. Of four listed, two aircraft are on the job. An Otter has been reassigned to the West Coast, while the King Air is expected out of maintenance.

2. Eight ships are listed. Six are in dock, one for a press conference, two for repairs and three research vessels are "alongside."

3. Fishery closure covers 25% of the Gulf of Mexico.

4. Turtles dead - 225

5. Dolphins dead - 24

This doesn't feel like an "all out response." promised by President Obama on April 29.
