One year after oil started spilling in the Gulf of Mexico... there will be vigils along the shore from Florida to Louisiana where many are still suffering.
Fox News Radio's Jeff Monosso reports from Grand Isle, LA:
The disaster aboard the Deepwater Horizon oil rig led to the deaths of eleven workers. Over the next 85 days, 206 million gallons of oil spewed from the well, washing up on the shores along the Gulf Coast -- hurting local fishermen who could not fish in the oil soaked waters, and the tourism industry. Today is not only the 1 year anniversary, but also the deadline for parties seeking damages to join a federal lawsuit against the oil rig's owner, Transocean.
