The Untold Story of the Exxon ValdezStreaming Video - 2013
When the Exxon Valdez struck Bligh Reef in Prince William Sound on March 24, 1989, no one could imagine the environmental disaster that would follow. The tanker carried 55 million gallons of oil in its tank, and about 11 million gallons spilled and eventually covered 1,200 miles of Alaska's coastline. The region's salmon, sea otters, seals, and seabirds had their habitats decimated. One of the main causes cited was the heavy drinking of the tanker's captain, Joseph Hazelwood. This ABC News program examines the timeline of the worst environmental disaster at the time, from the Captain's first drink to the devastating crash.
