Tracking Hurricane Alex: Join the Live Chat

[cnn-photo-caption image=http://i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/01/02/liveblogfinal.copy.jpg]

Hurricane Alex hits land along the west coast of the Gulf of Mexico and is having an impact at the oil spill site. We'll have the latest developments on the storm. Plus, see how BP is trying to shutdown its own safety watchdog unit, which was created under Congressional pressure in the wake of BP oil spills in Alaska and that devastating fire and explosion at its refinery in Texas City, Texas in 2005.

    Thank you and good night Anderson & Team 360. Thank you again for being where the BP story continues to unwind and lies continue to be exposed.

    Good night to my blog friends. May you have a safe and pleasant tomorrow.

    @Mike-i still think Gore is smarter than Clinton re: the sex thing, but thanks for your input.

    Good night AC360 Team and fellow bloggers.
    Continued prayers for the families of the 11 men who lost their life on the rig. May God give them strength to get through this.

    Stay safe everyone
    Thanks again for your outstanding reporting Anderson.

    @Wendi, BP has the reach the equipment and is on the scene and this is BP's legal responsibility.

    On the other hand this rept by Drew Griffin backs up your pt.

    A huge problem with how to handle safety issues at BP sounds like. Underscores the need for a pause in deepwater drilling.

    Why close independent watchdog office?

    Yes, when you love someone they are the skip in your step. She's absolutely right about that. It's more than everything as she said.

    Good night everyone.

    @Lisal- I couldn't agree more. I am glad that nothing can stop their families from speaking out. I know their ain't no rest for the wicked, thanks for keeping them honest Anderson.

    I'm sad for the widows and families of the rig workers who died at sea. Anderson is correct in reminding us to not forget this important part of the tragedy. When I think of the Gulf crisis, I am reminded that 11 men lost their lives. My prayers go out to those families.
