The worst oil spill in U.S. history.

It's definitely real. I was at the beach last night and confirmed with my own two eyes the devastating effects of this oil crisis. Simply heartbreaking.

One of the world's most beautiful beaches is being ruined right before our very eyes. Yes, they're making efforts to clean the sand at night, only to be slammed by the slimy, unrefined and putrid oil and tar all over again. It's unbelievable.

I'm not meaning to harp on this so much but it's something that is directly effecting my hometown, it's economy, it's people and our beautiful shores and ocean life.

Double red flags are flying out at Pensacola Beach meaning if you get in the water, you will be fined or even worse, arrested.

I just never imagined this happening.

My beach :(
