1. GULF SPILL

Oil 'likely' headed into Loop Current -- NOAA

A thin stem of oil stretching east from BP PLC's spill is increasingly likely to enter the Loop Current, a powerful Gulf of Mexico flow that runs past the Florida Keys and up the Atlantic Seaboard, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration chief said today. Stark satellite imagery released yesterday revealed that, while the large majority of oil remains bobbing off the Louisiana coast, "a tendril of light oil has been transported down toward the Loop Current," NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco said. In fact, oil may already be entrained in the current, she said, and NOAA is sending imagery aircraft out today to determine the extent of the oil's drift.
