Pieces of a $4 million oil booming system in the Perdido Pass in Orange Beach, Ala., float in disarray Thursday, July 1, 2010 after six foot seas caused by Hurricane Alex battered the pass overnight. Officials said large bolts holding the structure together sheared off in the high seas.  They hope to have it back in place by Saturday. (AP Photo/Dave Martin)
