Oil Spill Along the Yellowstone River
An Exxon oil pipeline ruptured over the weekend, sending as many as 42,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River in Montana. Here's video from one landowner, Alexis Bonogofsky, whose property is now covered in oil.
Alexis works for the National Wildlife Federation and her partner Mike Scott works for the Sierra Club's Beyond Coal Campaign. You can follow Alexis' twitter feed here and see more photos of how their land's been affect.
Here's more video about the latest on the cleanup efforts, and it includes a segment of Mike asking an Exxon lead more about what chemicals residents are being exposed to (sorry about the commercial before the video).
We'll continue updating you on this spill and our response to it. For now, here are some informative articles from the Billings Gazette and the NY Times:
