Florida Panhandle bracing for more tar balls, oil, Naples Daily News, June 20, 2010:
Hans Graber, a professor at the University of Miami, said Sunday that he expects the oil to eventually wash ashore near Clearwater, Sarasota and farther south. ...
Some scientists have disagreed over whether oil would hit Florida's west coast, or whether it would get into the loop current and avoid the west coast and flow down to the Keys and up Florida's east coast. Graber thinks both will likely happen.
"Oil is slowly creeping along the coast," he said.
