oil spill and mosquito virus in key west

What has anyone heard about how the oil spill and the mosquito virus are affecting Key West. Supposed to be going for 6 days in June and wanted to do some fishing?

What? an oil spill?, mosquito virus?

Is it 2012 already?

Enjoy your fishing trip.

Media hype, that's what I've heard.

Here all the word is the incredibly high temps all over the U.S. that is expected to kill 1000's. I think your odds are better in the Keys then up north.

Toga! Toga!

What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

The oil spill hasn't reached Key West (or fortunately anywhere in Florida yet). I've never had a mosquito problem in Key West, but you can wear repellent if you're worried about it. We should be in Key West sometime in June as well. Enjoy your trip! :)

Oil spill has not had an impact yet. Cross your fingers they get it stopped soon. I was at the health department today for travel shots. The dengue fever is still a concern, but only a couple people have come down with it over the last year and no one has died. Mosquito control has worked very hard to be sure the insect critters are put out of business.
