The chemical that spilled was vinyl chloride... 66 residents were hospitalized

 

The train approached a red signal before the bridge... but dispatch cleared the train to proceed under red

The evacuations have been extended for another week until Sat Dec. 8th...

The railroad bridge is the same one when a train derailed back in 2009
