HOUSTON (Reuters) - BP Plc oil spill workers in the Gulf of Mexico prepared for a possible evacuation on Thursday as a brewing tropical storm threatened more delays in attempts to end the environmental disaster.

U.S. officials said they would decide on Thursday night whether to unhook surface ships and evacuate the site, but said the blown-out well would remain capped even if an evacuation forces a temporary halt to undersea surveillance.
