The Deepwater Horizon oil drilling rig located off the coast of Louisiana on Mississippi caught fire on April 20, 2010, resulting in a tragic explosion that left several workers dead.
The subsequent oil spill caused by the explosion has already leaked millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, closing fishing grounds and disrupting the freight traffic along the entire Gulf coastline. Thousands of commercial fishing vessels based in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida are feeling the effects of the spill.
The effect of an oil spill on the Gulf Coast and Florida is being felt by commercial fishermen and coastal restaurants and property owners, as well as the tourism industry. The economic harm caused by this disaster may be felt for years to come.
