High waves and stiff winds, meanwhile, kept oil skimmers and other environmental cleanup vessels back at port in Venice, La., for the better part of Sunday, allowing the oil slick to widen to about 600 square miles. Those same heavy weather conditions were keeping the sheen safely away from the Louisiana coast, though some communities had deployed booms around particularly fragile shorelines as a precautionary measure.
