Gulf Residents Pray for Job Recovery

Ad Feedback

Gulf Coast residents are thanking God that the leaking British Petroleum oil well is finally sealed. They are now praying for a quick recovery of lost jobs.

Some areas affected by the spill are still closed to fishing. And shrimpers who are allowed to fish are finding it difficult to sell their catch because of consumer perception.

Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, who was in charge of monitoring the disaster, announced Sunday that the BP oil well was "effectively dead" and no longer considered a threat.

The news came after nearly five months of the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

Clean up will remain a long term effort. There is still oil in the water along the Gulf that continues to wash up on shore.

President Barack Obama has promised to continue working with those affected.
