(AP) Florida should prepare for spill, Crist says
Governor warns that currents could carry oil down the state's coast
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist says that even though the Panhandle will likely see the first impact from the oil spill, the entire state should be prepared.
Crist says in a worst-case scenario, currents could carry the oil down the state's Gulf coast, through the Keys and then up the Atlantic coast.
Crist toured the Escambia County emergency operations center Tuesday and received a briefing on local efforts and plans.
Crist says he doesn't want his state to be criticized for not doing enough. He says it's better to be seen as doing too much.
