Officials working on the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico are watching a cluster of storms over Florida that could develop into a tropical disturbance.

The government point man on the oil spill, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, said Monday he is not currently planning to suspend cleanup work or drilling on a relief well meant to plug the busted well for good.

The National Hurricane Center says the storms could move over the Gulf this week near where the Deepwater Horizon sank after an explosion in April.

Forecasters say there is a small chance the system could become a tropical depression or tropical storm.

BP engineers are finishing the final 100 feet of a relief well mean to intersect the blown-out well and permanently seal the leak.
