NBC 15 reports Relief Well Drilling on the ‘Well from Hell’ to be halted until storms pass:

Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen says the suspension could delay completion of the relief well by two or three days. Crews will pop in a temporary plug to keep what they’ve drilled so far safe, but they won’t send workers back to land. They have about 30 feet left to drill.

A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM LOCATED OVER THE SOUTHEASTERN GULF OF MEXICO…A LITTLE LESS THAN 100 MILES WEST OF SOUTHWEST COAST OF THE FLORIDA PENINSULA…IS ACCOMPANIED BY A LARGE AREA OF SHOWERS AND SQUALLS. ALTHOUGH THERE HAS BEEN LITTLE CHANGE IN ORGANIZATION DURING THE PAST SEVERAL HOURS…UPPER-LEVEL WINDS ARE FORECAST TO BECOME A LITTLE MORE CONDUCIVE FOR DEVELOPMENT. THERE IS A HIGH CHANCE…60 PERCENT…OF THIS SYSTEM BECOMING A TROPICAL OR SUBTROPICAL CYCLONE DURING THE NEXT 48 HOURS AS THE LOW MOVES WEST-NORTHWESTWARD AT 5 TO 10 MPH.
