Watch clips from the special 'Coastal Crisis: What Lies Ahead?'

April 20, 2010 - The day most of us first heard the name "Deep Water Horizon."

Now that we've lived with this Coastal Crisis for more than 70 days, we're beginning to wonder what's next. Once this massive oil blowout stops spewing into the Gulf, will our environment ever get back to the way it once was? Will the species of animals endangered by the spill survive? Will offshore workers, fishermen, and charter boat captains have jobs by the time this is all over?

Those directly impacted by this man-made disaster are taking steps now to ensure the survival of their way of life, and those of us further inland are banding together in support of our coastal neighbors.
