Welcome to Gulf Coast Oil Spill Answers. What would you like to know?

Some of the volatile chemicals in oil have been linked to miscarriage, preterm birth and low birth weight, so it is a good idea for pregnant women to avoid the areas where there are elevated levels of VOCs in the air. These are areas that include noticeable smells of oil or visible oil and also any areas where the EPA monitoring system detects elevated levels. The EPA air monitoring results are being updated regularly at www.epa.gov/bpspill.As a precaution, pregnant women may choose to avoid any areas directly along the waterfront and beachfront, even when oil is not visible.
