WLOX – We know what happens w/ wind-driven water, but what about wind-driven oil?

This hurricane season Mississippi Gulf Coast residents have another worry. What happens if oil is pushed on shore by an approaching storm?

We all know that following Hurricane Katrina there was a lot of confusion concerning whether it was wind or water that damaged homes along our beach front. Many residents found out they did not have the coverage they thought they had.

So what if oil is pushed ashore? Will your home or flood insurance cover you? Or will it be the responsibility of BP to cover any damages to property where oil is involved.

If it is the responsibility of BP, should the state get some signed document outlining BP’s responsibility in the event oil comes ashore.
