Life After the Ohio Train Derailment: Trouble Breathing, Dying Animals, and Saying Goodbye | New Republic

Must Read

A train derailment in Ohio on February 3 resulted in the release of toxic chemicals and the evacuation of residents within a one-mile zone. 

The train underwent controlled burning to release the chemicals, causing respiratory issues and skin reactions for nearby residents, and dead animals have been found. Norfolk Southern, the company responsible for the cleanup, has offered $1,000 “inconvenience checks” to residents within the evacuation zone but inconsistencies and frustrations have been reported with the policy. Some experts warn of enduring impacts as chemicals seep into the soil and groundwater, and residents are uncertain about available support and guidance from Norfolk Southern and the government.
