train derails in Ohio emergency
train derails in Ohio emergency

Another Vinyl Chloride train crashed back in 2012.

The 2012 crash involved 120,000 lbs of released Vinyl Chloride, while this year’s crash released 1.1 million lbs…

So the East Palestine, OH crash was 9x the amount of vinyl chloride exposure compared to the 2012 Paulsboro, N.J.

Yet, people were evacuated from Paulsboro for 3 weeks while OH only evacuated for 5 days..

Can you please make it make sense? Thank you…


For residents of the area, however, who were evacuated from their homes and lived in motels around South Jersey for nearly three weeks after the derailment occurred, the presence of any vinyl chloride in the area is something to worry about.
