It quotes Ed Overton, an LSU professor who leads a federal chemical hazard assessment team for oil spills:
Hurricane season is fast approaching in June and experts are sure the oil will still be flowing by then. Though it might seem counterintuitive, a big storm could help by dispersing and diluting the worst of the oil, Overton said.
“A hurricane is Mother Nature’s vacuum cleaner,” Overton said. Normally it cleans things up. But that’s not a solution with a continuing spill.
