OCEAN SPRINGS Miss./CAMPECHE, Mexico (Reuters) - Large patches of thick oil from BP Plc's Gulf of Mexico oil spill washed ashore in Mississippi for the first time on Sunday while the Atlantic hurricane season's first named storm posed an uncertain threat to the gulf.

The oil spill, which began on April 20, has caused an economic and environmental disaster along the U.S. Gulf Coast, threatening fisheries, tourism and wildlife.
