The consequences of this disaster are going to be immense.

BAYOU LA BATRE, Ala. -- Alabama Conservation Commissioner Barnett Lawley says officials have found oil on the seabed just off the state's coast, confirming fears that the Gulf oil spill could be doing more damage than is readily apparent from the surface.

Barnett said Thursday that nets used by the state to determine what's on the bottom pulled up submerged oil and shrimp as recently as last week.
