For those that do not live in the Navarre Beach Area, I have provided above the best news media sources for obtaining information about current conditions of our beaches. However, the most reliable information is usually reports from forum members that are local and of course our great vacationers.

Deepwater Horizon Incident Update #52

Navarre Beach and Northwest Florida


Situation Update

Navarre Beach and Santa Rosa’s entire coastline is open for swimming and fishing. Two links to live Web cams on Navarre Beach are available at www.santarosa.fl.gov/oilspill.

There are currently no swimming or fishing restrictions on Navarre Beach or anywhere in Santa Rosa County.

Today, July 1, Navarre Beach has been impacted with pea-sized tar balls. Larger dollar-sized tar patties were reported west of crossover number 8. Tar balls continue to come in with the tide. Clean up is ongoing.

Sheen surrounding a 50 by 50 yard tar ball patch was reported in the mouth of the Pensacola Pass. Tar balls intermixed with seaweed were also reported in the Pensacola Pass.

Beachgoers may see signs posted in areas that are being or are scheduled to be cleaned, which also indicate what beach areas near public walkovers have no current oil impacts. The areas being cleaned are not closed, but beach goers may find other portions of the beach more enjoyable.

Tar balls, tar patties and sheen have been reported in Northwest Florida and impacts are expected to continue within the next 72 hours.

NOAA trajectories continue to predict oil impacts across the western Florida Panhandle through Saturday as far east as the Choctawhatchee Bay.

Weather conditions continued to be unfavorable for recovery operations today, July 1.

There are 60 cleanup workers scheduled to be working on Navarre Beach tonight.

Cleanup crews from Mobile unified Command are cleaning private beaches and marshes
