Not Your Tanning Oil

Some specialists contend that there is a slight chance that "tar balls" from the Gulf oil spill will wash up onto the Hamptons' shoreline. According to the EH Star, the current Gulf Stream currents make it unlikely that oil will reach the Northeast; however, "storms, such as hurricanes, could alter those patterns and some oil could reach our waters or shores." Luckily, East Hampton already had its own Oil Summit, during which officials discussed ways to combat the potential "invasion of our waters." [EH Star]
