The largest oil disaster in U.S. history, caused by a BP rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico, is threatening the U.S. Gulf Coast and authorities are trying to protect sensitive ecological areas.
Residents along the Gulf Coast are keeping close watch for oil on the water or ashore. If you spot oil or tar balls, we want to hear from you. Upload a photo or video of the oil and report where and when you spotted it. And if you’ve had any experience interacting with BP, share your story. Together, with CNN, we can track the oil slick and its effects on Gulf Coast communities and wildlife.
