On April 20, 2010, an explosion aboard the Deepwater Horizon, a drilling rig leased by the oil company BP, set off a blaze that killed 11 crew members. Two days later, it sank about 50 miles off the Louisiana coast and crude oil began streaming out of a broken pipe attached to a well that the rig had been drilling nearly a mile below sea level.

Millions of gallons of oil have flowed into the Gulf of Mexico since the explosion. This massive slick continues to close in on the fragile Louisiana coast, and drift toward Alabama and Florida. President Obama has called the spill an “unprecedented environmental disaster.”

The gulf fishing industry is crucial to hundreds of thousands of jobs. Already thousands of workers have been idled because coastal Louisiana east of the Mississippi River has been closed down.
