Cedar Key Residents Discuss Oil Spill
With the leaking well in the gulf still gushing 60,000 barrels of oil a day, cities all along Florida's coast are preparing for the crude to wash up on their beaches.
Many people came to a meeting Wednesday night in Cedar key that was called by a law firm to hear how to protect themselves, and their livelihood, even though experts say he oil is 100 miles away from Cedar Key.
Experts say BP is completely liable for all costs of the cleanup... as well as personal property damage and loss of earnings... and want to make sure if the oil reaches Cedar Key, residents know how to properly process claims.
There will be two other town meetings regarding the oil spill and the law... one in Steinhatchee and one in Suwannee, both Thursday night at 6 p.m.
