KATV, April 2, 2013: [...] They have several patients and expect more to continue coming in. All have been ducks but volunteers said they expect to see animals like otters and beavers. Some are covered so thickly in oil that volunteers can’t even tell what kind of duck they are until they’ve finished cleaning the bird. Everyone inside the clinic has to wear protective eyewear, glove and scrubs because of the hazardous chemicals. [...]

KTHV, April 1, 2013: After getting a number of concerns from Mayflower residents, THV 11 News checked into the public health dangers following the recent oil spill. Doctors with State Health Department said their main concern right now is the evacuated neighborhood where the oil spill originated. Outside that area, they feel you’re OK going about your daily routine in Mayflower. But some places, like Mayflower Elementary School, are still taking some precautions to protect our kids. “It seems like it’s getting better each day but definitely very strong,” Mayflower Parent Kala Francis said. [...] Maintenance crews also spent the day cleaning vents. There were also two rounds of air quality tests, which turned out negative. “Now certainly they might smell it, but again, brief exposures should not have any significant health concerns,” Dr. William Mason said.

    it "seems" like it is getting better each day… said someone on day 3 or 4 nice strategy of reacting to a potential threat. Humans are so dumbed down.

      And who says that the Keystone Pipeline won't destroy the aquifers throughout much of the US. The Keystone Pipeline won't help the US become oil independent. It is solely to export the oil to other countries. The pipeline from Canada to the US for US use isn't even being used even near capacity. The globalists are not US citizens. NAFTA was a trick to destroy the US.

      Why didn't they convert to solar and wind in the 1970s when they had the technology and the knowledge that something needed to be done? This raping of the whole environment would not have happened.

    Apparently they stopped the oil from entering a lake in the nick of time.

    Here in BC we are fighting pipelines and oil tankers. Mistakes happen and companies try to avoid responsibility. They can't clean up bitumin it sinks in water. Shipping refined oil is better for the environment as gas and deisel fuel float on water and evaporate. Canada should refine its oil in Edmonton and ship the finished product out.

    We are on the verge of a massive infrastructure collapse. We have way to much earth movement with way to many "Static" pipes.

    When they build near fault lines they add "Stretch" room. When they build anywhere else its unmovable. Now we have a multitude of earth movements on an aged water/sewer/gas/electrical system.

    I am not sure how anyone could not think these are tied together. The earth is moving, and our manmade crap isnt.

    Looks like the Melting Pot is starting to heat up.

    I just hope the Arkansas DNR has enough sence to NOT use corexit on it. What a mess. Aging infrastructure along with the earth movements of late is creeping up on us. More to come.
