More Than $48 Million in Claims Paid

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) - An official for BP PLC says the oil giant
has paid 18,000 claims along the Gulf Coast totaling more than $48
million.
Darryl Willis is the BP vice president overseeing the claims
process. He said Sunday in Florida's Escambia County that the
company has received 37,000 claims so far.
He says the unpaid claims are still being processed and that
none have been denied. He says "we'll pay until we're done
paying."
President Barack Obama warned last week during a trip to
Louisiana that he didn't want BP "nickel-and-diming people" who
claim to have lost money because of the oil spill in the Gulf of
Mexico.
