Gulf oil slick expected to hit land Friday

WASHINGTON (BestGrowthStock) – Senior Obama administration officials said on Thursday a widening oil spill in the Gulf coast will hit landfall on Friday evening and declared the incident of national significance.

Briefing reporters at the White House, the officials said the government will push BP Plc as hard as possible to stop the leak and lead the cleanup.

It could be 90 days before a relief valve is installed to stop the leak, the officials said.
