On April 20, 2010, the Deepwater Horizon exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, resulting in the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry. The "BP Oil Spill", as it came to be known, killed 11 men, injured another 17 and sent nearly 5 million barrels of oil spewing into the gulf until it was capped three months later.

WBHM partnered with public broadcast outlets across the Gulf Coast region to create the Gulf Coast Consortium, a multi-media project to expand reporting on the spill. You can view/hear all of the consortium's reporting at PublicMediaExchange.org and access our locally-produced stories below:
