5:15 am
the gulf oil disaster appears to be getting worse as efforts to contain the spill are stepped up. late last night, we learned as many as 5,000-barrels of oil a day are spewing in the gulf of mexico. >> now, the military may be called in to help keep that oil from reaching shore. craig boswell is on the shore in venice, louisiana this morning. what is the latest information? >> reporter: good morning to you. officials discovered a new and third leak. they are expecting the wind to shift. they have been a northerly direction. now, they are expecting winds to come up from the south and
5:16 am
now that oil is only about 16 miles from the shore. according to noaa, 5,000- barrels a day of oil are pouring in the gulf of mexico. that is five times the amount originally believed. meantime, oil joint, bp, which was liseing the deep water rig is trying to strategically burn the oil at sea before it reaches land. >> we have aasked our agencies to respond to anymore impacts on our wildlife and our coast. >> this is a catastrophic accident that we're going to have to deal with. >> reporter: s at oil closer to shore, hotels, restaurants, fishermen and charter boat owners are fearing a worst case scenario. >> we are rolling up on the summertime and that is our busy time of the year. >> reporter: the long-term effect on businesses and the environment is harder to predict along with the oysters and fish, there are countless varieties of marine mammals and birds.

those who make their living within miles of the oil rig in the gulf are also concerned of future spills near a fragile ecosystem. >> my concern is if they can't shut this one off, can they shut any of them off? >> reporter: it is of the mated the cost of this could easily reach $1 billion that doesn't take into account the potential cost to the families and businesses here along the gulf coast. >> so they are doing a controlled burn right now to make sure this oil spill doesn't reach some of the shoreline. tell me about that and how long they expect that to go on. >> reporter: right. that is one of things the coast guard is working on. they tried a test burn yesterday where they take about a 5,000-foot boom and gather up this oil and take it more out it a remote section and then torch it. it look as if that were somewhat successful yesterday. they have not made any plans certainly to do that overnight or early this morning. we should learn more about those plans later today. that is one of the best ideas
5:18 am
they have going so far to get some of this surface oil off of that water. >> all right. thank you, craig. appreciate it. while they're dealing with stuff down there, right here, we are in pretty good shape. a little chilly out there. that is about it right now. >> the main issue this morning is the frost advisory in effect like yesterday morning because of the possibility of some frost and the main concern about that is it can harm or kill tender vegetation so sensitive plants and the like. let me show the area covered by the frost advisory. many counties to our north and west. it does not include washington, d.c. itself but it does include, for example, montgomery county, howard county, fairfax county, loudoun county, prince william, baltimore, places like that. all those counties you see shaded in gray there. this advisory for the time being is in effect until 9:00 this morning. so there you go. those areas there.

a big disappointment for the washington capitals. the team has been eliminated from the playoffs. >> final last night in game seven was 2-1. that means the caps blew a three games to one series lead. that means no stanley cup again this year and a lot of second guessing for the players and coaches. >> i feel exactly like they did. i thought we had a good chance to win the stanley cup this year and i would have bet my house that they wouldn't have beaten us three games in a row and we would have only scored three goals in almost 140 shots. but i told them there is no sense of me saying anything right now because we all feel as low as we can possibly feel
5:27 am
and we'll meet in a day and we'll discuss the should have beens and could have beens at that time. >> i don't know. maybe we didn't work hard enough. maybe we have to look at that. that is another thing that is not acceptable. we were first overall in the regular season and we can't even score a goal on the power play against montreal. you mean that is really bad. >> we all know before a pretty good team but we didn't win when we had to win. >> that is just the way it was. the caps become the first team in nhl history as a number one seed to blow a three game to one lead against a number eight seed. >> we'll have more highlights coming up in our next half however. and we have much more still ahead this morning on fox 5 morning news. >> reporter: dozens of people
