The first hurricane storm in the Atlantic named Alex has hit the clean up efforts of BP for the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
The hurricane Alex has upgraded from a tropical storm status in late last night and is now expected to hit the coasts of Mexico and Texas later on today. This storm is expected to stop the clean up efforts for next several days to come.
The hurricane has created waves of 12ft of height. It will delay the plans to implement a new system to capture more oil from the blown out well.
