LIVE Gulf Oil Spill Cam: Watch Video Feed Of BP Spill

UPDATE: The live feed of the Gulf oil spill has been intermittent due to immense traffic. We’ll be checking constantly for the best working feed and will update on this page with the latest.

WASHINGTON (AP) – A live video feed that shows the oil gushing from the blown-out well in the Gulf of Mexico is now available online.

The video shows a large plume of oil and gas still spewing next to the tube that’s carrying some of it to the surface.

Congressman Ed Markey of Massachusetts pushed BP PLC to make the video available to the public. It’s now posted on the Web site of the Select Committee on Energy Independent and Global Warming.

BP was leasing the rig Deepwater Horizon when it exploded and sank a month ago off Louisiana. The company has been trying ever since to stop the oil spewing from the well.

BP says a mile-long tube is capturing 210,000 gallons of oil a day, but some is still escaping. The company initially estimated 210,000 gallons was the total amount of the spill.
