Coastal Crisis: What Lies Ahead?

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - For more than two months, we've watched as hundreds of thousands of gallons of oil has spewed into the Gulf.

The Deepwater Horizon rig explosion led to the death of eleven men and is slowly killing our wildlife, our seafood, and our way of life.

As we fight to stop the leak and clean the coastline, we can't help but wonder - what lies ahead?

KPLC's Cynthia Arceneaux, in conjunction with Raycom Media's sister stations in Louisiana, hosts "Coastal Crisis: What Lies Ahead?"
