With winds gusting up to 40 m.p.h., heavy sea swells pushed a 100-square-mile oil slick to within 12 miles of Morocco's Atlantic coastline Wednesday, hampering a cleanup operation and raising fears that the vessel could break up in the storm. Meteorologists said weather conditions deteriorated sharply Wednesday and pushed the oil oozing from the 283,632-ton Iranian tanker Kharg 5 toward the port of Oualidia, about 80 miles south of Casablanca.
