Texas on alert as Hurricane Alex sweeps in

http://news-updations.blogspot.comUS President Barack Obama has declared a state of emergency in Texas as the Hurricane Alex bears down on the coast with 80mph (130km/h) winds.

Alex is expected to make in landfall near the Texas-Mexico border as a category two hurricane, forecasters say.

Heavy seas caused by the first Atlantic hurricane of the season have been already disrupted BP's oil spill clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico.

Boats skimming the slick have been sent back to port by the US Coast Guard.

High waves and strong winds generated by Alex have also pushed more oil from the spill on to beaches in Louisiana.

"The sad thing is that it has been about three weeks since we had any big oil come in here," said marine science technician Michael Malone.
