Tonight: Candlelight Vigil for Gulf and residents

Posted By on Thu, May 20, 2010 at 7:57 PM

Thirty days.

One month.

On April 20, BP's Deepwater Horizon rig exploded, killing 11 on board. The explosion created an unchecked gusher spewing hundreds of thousands of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Millions of gallons later and an entire month, it's still there. Tonight, the Gulf Restoration Network remembers those who lost their lives on the rig and the unprecedented damage done to the environment, livelihoods and the entire Gulf coast.

The event takes place from 10:30 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. at the amphitheater across from Jackson Square in the French Quarter.
