Tropical storm Alex, the first named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season this year, has cased BP and the Coast Guard to suspend cleanup efforts of the massive oil spill off the Louisiana coast due to high winds and rough waters. All oil skimming ships have been sent back to port due to unsafe conditions. The storm is expected to become a hurricane as it moves closer to shore steering clear of the oil spill but conditions might push oil farther inland. (Photo by NOAA via Getty Images)
