Small boats manuver around the $4.6 million broken oil containment boom in the Perdido Pass in Orange Beach, Ala., Friday, July 2, 2010. Heavy seas caused by Hurricane Alex sheared off large bolts on the boom, causing almost 800 feet of the structure to come apart. Oil from the Deepwater Horizon incident is expected to come ashore over the July 4th weekend. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)
