Residents respond to the oil spill in different ways

New Orleans, LA – This Week, federal authorities expanded the area off-limits to fishing to 11,000 square miles of coastline stretching from Louisiana to Florida. Oil has been spilling from the Deepwater Horizon well for close to 3 weeks, and attempts to stop the flow have so far failed. As the mass of oil nears the Louisiana marshes, residents respond to try and save the wetlands that protect cities from hurricanes and provide breeding grounds for fish and wildlife.
