2nd tank believed from BP's rig explosion washed ashore

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. (AP) - 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
Miramar Beach is near Destin about 35 miles northwest of Panama
City Beach.
The explosion resulted in a massive oil spill in the gulf.
