Last weekend there wasn't any oil in the inner-coastal, and I don't think they have seen anything on the beach in Destin...yet. Navarre beach has seen a few tar balls but nothing major. As you go farther west it gets worse... I'll be out at crab island on Saturday and Sunday this weekend and will let you guys if there is anything nasty... I did here that they have shut off the destin pass but I haven't been down there this week to confirm it or not. My fingers are crossed that they can keep the oil out of the inner-coastal, if they can't it's gonna be a long hot summer.

From what i've heard there installed pilings and have booms ready in East Pass but that shouldn't effect the intercoastal.
