Toxic chemicals known as PCBs have been blanketing the floor of the San Diego Bay in California in the U.S. for decades.

Looking at the pristine surface of the waters there, most people would never even know.

Correspondent Mike Kirsch travels to San Diego Bay to speak to residents and environmentalists. He’ll tell us about the cause of the contamination and what actions the city is taking to clean up the mess.

And we also bring you an exclusive interview with Cuban Five leader Gerardo Hernandez. He was released from prison in the U.S. after 16 years. Now, at home in Havana, he will share his story about how his life has changed.

Watch Americas Now, Sunday at 6 p.m. eastern or 7 a.m. Beijing time on CCTV America.
