(CNN) -- iReporters across the Gulf Coast have been documenting the oil disaster as it worsens and heads toward their hometowns. Their words show the grief and sadness that so many Gulf Coast residents are experiencing.
New Orleans, Louisiana, resident Eileen Romero drives down to Grand Isle, Louisiana, regularly. "I cannot fathom the depth and breadth of the emotions these residents feel. I am still so angry today, and they are there watching this every day," she said.
"After seeing all the news reports, I decided to drive down to Grand Isle ... to see for myself," said iReporter Natasha Combs. She has reported on the clean up efforts there.
Musician Johnny Colt has been to various locations across the Gulf Coast, documenting the oil disaster and talking to local residents and officials. "I've been coming down to the Gulf to vacation with my family for 20 years," he said. "I couldn't believe how little information we were getting. I didn't like feeling like a victim."
And Abby Burtner Manuel, a photographer for the U.S. Marine Corps, decided to visit Grand Isle and take pictures there as a civilian. She said she wanted "to show what us regular people see and the impact it has on the locals and their homes."
These iReporters are just a handful of concerned Gulf residents who are documenting the oil disaster and sharing their stories with the world. You can see more on CNN iReport.
