Editorial Blog Entry The Oil Spill Aftermath The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico during April of 2010, has had a tremendous amount of ripple effects. What could have been prevented was not prevented. Not only were the communities, fisherman, and ecosystems affected by this horrific accident. The eleven oil rig workers who were on the oil rig were never found and were presumed dead almost immediately. (Fahrenthold & Mufson, 2010) The oil rig explosion happened on April 20th, 2010, and is still an ongoing issue. (Fahrenthold & Mufson, 2010) There was not much time before the oil reached Gulf Coast fishing areas, such as Pass Christian, Mississippi. (Fahrenthold & Mufson, 2010) The weather circumstances did not help the situation either. Wind forced the oil to spread North, faster and wider than predicted. Oil reached many more fishing areas, ecosystems, and communities than were originally expected. We are still dealing with the damages that were created in April, today; five months later. The cleanup and removal of oil is still in action.
