2023 Ohio train derailment
A simple account of the facts. Sources from news accounts from across the political spectrum.
In East Palestine, Ohio, a train derailment (February 3) caused a fire and released toxic chemicals into the air, surface soil and surface waters, resulting in the evacuation of thousands of residents. The Biden administration sent federal resources to the area, and an inquiry into railroad hazardous materials safety practices was launched. The Health and Human Services Department, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Environmental Protection Agency are conducting public health testing and assessments. Ohio Governor Mike DeWine called for Congress to review railroad safety regulations and to conduct a full investigation and at least two federal lawsuits have been filed against Norfolk Southern, the operators of the transportation company. This incident highlights concerns over the transportation of hazardous materials and potential health risks for communities near railroads.
