‘WE NUKED A TOWN”: Media Blackout On “Catastrophic” Environmental Disaster in Ohio Caused By Large Controlled Explosion – Journalists Covering It Arrested

“We basically nuked a town with chemicals so we could get a railroad open,” said Silverado Caggiano, a hazardous materials specialist.

Palestine, Ohio looks like a disaster movie.

At around 9 p.m. on Feb. 3, 50 cars of a 141-car Norfolk Southern train derailed in the Ohio town.

Nearly 48 hours after the accident, the situation took a concerning turn when changing conditions within one of the rail cars led authorities to warn of a potential “major explosion.” Officials then took quick action, conducting a controlled release of vinyl chloride; on Twitter images of a towering plume of hazardous chemicals were shown to be seen from miles away. An entire town was evacuated, fish and livestock are dying. On Wednesday, residents were told it was safe to return home. But it isn’t.

Reporters are being arrested for simply reporting on the train derailment in Ohio which experts are saying is going to be the next Chernobyl.

 This is a true environmental disaster. The same evil clowns who detonated this environmental nuke are the same climate fraudsters telling you they are saving the planet.

Biden has made no statement. And no Federal help has been deployed.

DAILY MAIL: Toxic cancer-causing chemicals have been released into the air in East Palestine, Ohio, during a large controlled explosion at the site of the train derailment.  

Crews at the scene conducted the release of the hazardous chemicals – including vinyl chloride – from five of the derailed tanker cars that were in danger of exploding just after 3.30pm on Monday.

Two of the five detonated cars that were completely polymerized in the dangerous incident – as the fireball exploded and black smoke wafted through the air.

One of the major causes for concern was the presence of vinyl chloride inside the train. The substance is highly toxic and can cause acid burns in the lungs when ingested.

Authorities have been issuing forced evacuations of the surrounding areas in recent days – warning that there would be hellish shrapnel rain and chemical destruction if the cars were to have exploded on their own accord.

After the pre-emptive controlled explosion, local officials said the fire ‘reduced’ and the flames became more manageable but that they are waiting for it to cool off to move in.

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine had previously issued a grave warning to residents in the city that sits near the Ohio-Pennsylvania border, saying the fallout could be drastic for those who choose not to heed the warnings.

‘You need to leave, you just need to leave. This is a matter of life and death,’ said DeWine at a press conference.

‘Vinyl chloride in of itself is cancerous. Some of the other stuff is just as bad,’ hazardous materials specialist Silverio Caggiano told WKBN.

‘The hydrogen chloride is bad enough that when you inhale it, it mixes with the water in your lungs and you could have acid burns in your lungs,’ Caggiano said.

Another major cause for concerns is that the burning on the substances released from the train cars will send out phosgene – a highly toxic gas that can cause vomiting and breathing trouble.

The substance is so dangerous it was used as a weapon during World War I.

Best recap here:

When Newsmax spoke to Nick Drom, an independent manufacturing engineer, he said, “At this point, the only way that the vinyl chloride would be a major concern at this point though would be if a major amount spilled into a waterway or spilled into a sewer or spill into the ground and wasn’t burned.”

Conversely, according to Peter DeCarlo, an environmental health professor at Johns Hopkins University, “If there are still residual chemical emissions, then that still presents a danger for people in the area.”

One of East Palestine’s residents, Eric Whitining, who returned to his home after the evacuation order was lifted, told The Post that some nights the air smells like an “over-chlorinated swimming pool,” causing his eyes to burn.

“For a small town, we have to trust them, because what else do we have to do? We have to trust that they are not lying to us.”

Breitbart reporting:

A federal lawsuit has been launched in the wake of the fiery derailment of a train carrying toxic chemicals along the Ohio-Pennsylvania line last week.

The action seeks to force Norfolk Southern to initiate health testing for residents in both states.

Undetermined damages are also being sought as well as a full insight into the nature of the chemicals released into the atmosphere and water table in the accident.

AP reports the lawsuit filed Thursday by two Pennsylvania residents calls for the rail operator to pay for medical screenings and related care for anyone living within a 30-mile radius of the derailment in East Palestine, Ohio.

About 50 cars, including 10 carrying hazardous materials, derailed Feb. 3 in the village. No one was injured in the derailment investigators said was caused by a broken axle, as Breitbart News reported.

While five of the cars contained vinyl chloride, another five also were transporting unspecified “hazardous materials.”

Three days after the accident, authorities decided to release and burn vinyl chloride inside five tanker cars, sending hydrogen chloride and the toxic gas phosgene into the air.

Environmental regulators have been monitoring the air and water in surrounding communities and have said that so far the air quality remains safe and drinking water supplies have not been affected.

The Ohio and federal environmental protection agencies, working with local teams, “established a series of containment measures to help limit environmental impact to local streams and rivers from water runoff from the site,” Ohio EPA spokesperson James Lee said in a statement last Wednesday designed to ease local fears of contamination.

Those measures include installing earthen dams “to capture contaminants that may leave the derailment site” and the installation of “high volume aeration stations to help remove contaminants from Sulfur Run” stream, Lee said.

But some residents have complained about headaches and feeling sick since the accident while others demand immediate action to make clear what is at stake.
