The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
It's been 60 days since the catastrophic Deepwater Horizon explosion, which caused an oil spill that is devastating the Gulf Coast. And while it's still unclear how wide-ranging the effects will be on the ecosystem and coastal communities, one thing is clear: People across the region are suffering.
Here at CNN iReport, we quickly realized that we had a unique opportunity to share the stories of concerned Gulf residents. As the oil disaster worsened, we received dozens of photos and videos of oil-covered beaches and wildlife along with heartbreaking stories and compelling quotes.
We decided to showcase both the powerful photography and stories together on our blog, through a series of profiles of iReporters on the forefront of the disaster. We've heard stories from a rock star-turned-environmentalist, a lifelong Pensacola resident, and a woman who's driven hundreds of miles to tell the story of a suffering Louisiana town.
By taking a 175 ft in diameter X 75 ft high airform with relief valves attached at the peak this airform lowered over the discharge will begin collecting the oil before reaching the actual hole. By maintaining the airform in place the oil will fill the balloon and be pumped into tankers.
