A second storage tank believed to be from BP's Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion has washed ashore in the Florida Panhandle.
The Walton County Sheriff's Office said Monday that BP was taking the tank to New Orleans where the April rig explosion is being investigated.
The shiny metal tank with a white placard reading "Horiz" was found intact over the weekend and didn't appear to be leaking oil.
A similar tank that was oozing oil washed up Saturday at Panama City Beach about 190 miles from the rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico.
Miramar Beach is near Destin about 35 miles northwest of Panama City Beach.
The explosion resulted in a massive oil spill in the gulf.
