Tropical Weather Forces Crews to Stop Drilling


A strong storm has forced crews in the Gulf of Mexico to temporarily stop drilling a relief well.

They're just 30 feet from completing it.

The tropical depression is headed toward the BP well site and could turn into a tropical storm later Wednesday. Officials believe drilling will be delayed up to three days.
