There's talk of trying to burn it off, but supposedly they'd have to contain it with fireproof boom first?

Whether for booming, containment, or skimming/recovery offshore, the forecast for end of this week is really the worst, strong onshore winds and high seas Fri and Sat at least:

National Weather Service Marine Forecast

Hard to contain anything in those seas. The river delta, Breton Sound areas are in the cross-hairs in SE wind, and Miss. Sound in S wind. I hope they can get the BOP to close, because the other possible solutions would take much longer. Hurricane season starts June 1, by the way.

This is such a boring town to live in.....
