The East Palestine Train Derailment: What We Know

On February 3rd, 2023, a Norfolk Southern freight train carrying various hazardous chemicals derailed, leading to the evacuation and contamination of the area. According to the NTSB and EPA, one of the hazardous materials involved was vinyl chloride, a recognized carcinogen, which is highly unstable. Norfolk Southern executed a controlled release of the vinyl chloride to avoid a dangerous explosion, which required the evacuation of hundreds of residents and several business closures. However, this led to hazardous chemicals contaminating the area's water and air. Aside from the immediate consequences, this contamination may pose long-term health risks and devalue the affected property.

Residents have since been told it is safe to return home, but reports of illness and fears over poisonous air and water remain. And while preliminary evidence indicates the derailment and contamination were caused by mechanical issues and negligence by Norfolk Southern, there may be other parties to hold accountable.
