Oil spill bigger than Rhode Island
Clean up crews work frantically to clean up the spill that now covers over 1800 square miles of ocean.
That's bigger than the state of Rhode Island.
Authorities say they have begun burning some of the thickest oil in an attempt to keep it from spreading to land.
Some experts predict the oil could reach shore in as little as three days.
People off Florida's coast say they can smell the fumes from the leak that took place hundreds of miles away.
