Ohio Governor Mike DeWine called for a congressional investigation following the February 3 train derailment near East Palestine, Ohio — in which 38 rail cars derailed, including 11 which contained hazardous materials.

The derailment forced hundreds of nearby residents to evacuate for several days. The National Transportation Safety Board that along with the 38 rail cars that derailed, another 12 cars were damaged by a fire, causing an enormous black chemical cloud of toxic smoke.

At a news conference Tuesday, DeWine told reporters he was informed that the train, prior to its derailment, had not been considered a high hazardous material train, so the state was not notified that it was passing through.

Frankly, if this is true, this is absurd and we need to look at this. DeWine said. “Congress needs to take a look at how these things are handled. We should know when we have trains carrying hazardous materials that are going through the state of Ohio.

DeWine addressed concerns about harmful chemicals remaining in the air, and said that following a controlled release of chemicals, members of the Ohio National Guard were sent into the area in protective suits to measure the air.

During the release of highly toxic chemical no one was allowed back into the area until it was deemed safe, but reports show that monitoring showed that the air was basically what it was prior to the actual train crash?

On February 3, 2023., about 50 cars derailed in East Palestine as a train was carrying a variety of freight from Madison, Illinois, to Conway, Pennsylvania, rail operator Norfolk Southern said. No injuries were reported.

First responders found evidence of one of the train cars releasing vinyl chloride, NTSB member Michael Graham said at a press conference.

Vinyl chloride is used to make the polyvinyl chloride hard plastic resin used in a variety of plastic products, including pipes, wires and packaging materials.

One day after officials issued evacuation orders to hundreds of residents near the Ohio-Pennsylvania state line, they urgently warned any residents who had declined to leave to evacuate immediately, saying a rail car was at risk of a potential explosion that could launch deadly shrapnel as far as a mile around in the area.

You need to leave, you just need to leave. This is a matter of life and death, but later officials said residents needed to evacuate so crews could release chemicals from some of the derailed cars for a controlled burn out.

Crews released toxic chemicals into the air from five derailed tanker cars that were in danger of exploding. Vinyl chloride was slowly released from five rail cars into a trough that was then ignited, creating a large plume above the village of East Palestine.

Officials said after the controlled release crews would begin the “wrecking” process, in which the cars are moved off the tracks and relocated to a safe area where they’ll be looked at by National Transportation Safety Board officials.

Officials said that although it was the last option, the detonation went perfect. Residents were told they could return to their homes about five days after the incident.

East Palestine Fire Chief Keith Drabick said that air and water samples determined that the evacuation area, which covered about a one-mile radius, was safe for residents to return.

The evacuation order has been lifted, if you were asked to evacuate your residence due to the incident in East Palestine, you are permitted to return home. Please return in a safe and orderly manner. the report sounded.

A video that captured footage of the train about 20 miles before it reached the site where it derailed raised questions about when the crew knew there was a problem. Two videos show preliminary indications of mechanical issues on one of the rail car axles.

This is what people could expect when NATO uses chemical attacks in Ukraine for its proxy war against Russia, blowing up nuclear plants, bridges and the billion dollar Baltic Nord Stream gas pipeline near Denmark?

What this shows ,like previous coverups by the USA and played down or not reported in the UK is that the USA is more draconian than the countries it criticizes. The first action is– “cover this up !!– out comes the State Police etc to control the local population so that the authorities can control the media comments and at around the same time on the main state freeway near Tucson Arizona a tanker of nitric acid was involved in a crash causing dangerous gas to leak out -driver killed and surrounding area evacuated . You should check out the… Read more »

Even with the 34th degree Masonic Lodge residing in Scotland, or might it be just a battle between London City and a possible upcoming Scottish independence?

95 %of so called “Scottish”newspapers are either London owned /foreign owned or Jewish owned and pour out anti-Scottish propaganda daily-most of the land is foreign or English owned . We are told we are “not capable of looking after ourselves ” -too dumb etc typical colonialist propaganda used against Africa-India etc –the Irish fought for their independence ( Eire ) and achieved it -its time Scotland got up from kneeling down to their “betters ” and put more spirit into achieving independence . We used to be a nation on our own but were sold out for English gold and… Read more »

That depends on Mr.Putin,s philosophical dogma of continually “trying to be nice ” to the west-aka USA + puppy dog England when both countries hate Russia,s guts . He doesn’t seem to understand that its built into the American physic that they are the “Master Race ” and that the west would rather be destroyed than give in –just basically “cowboy style” – ride in-shoot up- and take over – worked against the Native Americans / -Mexico and anybody else who opposed them. The drawback about the “Long-Term ” approach to strategy is that the enemy sees it coming -has… Read more »

The west has been leaning towards a nuclear confrontation since the incidents at the largest nuclear plant in Ukraine/Europe, while sending advanced nuclear devices into Europe to confront Russia. What could have Russian generals have done to avoid this step?

Only make it impossible for the USA/UK/EU to win a nuke war by putting their own nukes near the USA – remember Russia is still ahead in it nuclear delivery systems able to bypass US/UK anti ballistic missiles.

The West offers zero protection for the mass public Russia has public nuke bomb shelters and so does North Korea.

Yes I have the original English book translated from Russian of the trials of the Japanese in China for War Crimes –testing germ warfare on Russian & Chinese prisoners-torturing them and 1000,s of Chinese citizens who were civilians –no mercy-coldblooded -downright evil – followers of the Knights of the Bushido .

I don’t want to post the tortures as they are so bad it would upset many on the web.
