Adm. Thad Allen says a containment cap installed on the BP rig is helping to limit the leak.

Allen says more than 14,800 barrels of oil have been kept out of Gulf waters in the last 24 hours.

Allen also says the amount of oil kept from spilling into the Gulf "has climbed steadily" from the first day the containment cap was installed.

Officials will be meeting with BP to assess how well it is handling claims for relief from people hurt by the spill.
