White House: The Florida Keys are out of the woods

The Obama administration says there is "virtually no threat" to the Florida Keys and the East Coast from the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

NOAA Administrator Jane Lubchenco told reporters that enough of the oil has been removed or evaporated and that the loop current that scientists had feared could bring the oil to the Keys and then up the East Coast, isn't now in the Gulf.
