A Norfolk Southern practice derailed in Calhoun County, Alabama, Thursday hours earlier than the corporate’s CEO Alan Shaw confronted lawmakers to reply questions on a Feb. 3 derailment that led to a poisonous chemical spill in East Palestine, Ohio.
Thursday’s derailment occurred round 6:45 a.m. within the Quad Cities space of White Plains, the Calhoun County Emergency Administration Company stated in a information launch.
There have been no studies of accidents and no studies of a hazardous leak after roughly 30 vehicles derailed, an company spokesperson stated.
“Norfolk Southern has responded and is working carefully with us,” the spokesperson stated in an announcement. “Norfolk Southern has their cleanup crew on website and there’s no estimation on how lengthy it is going to take.”
That is the third derailment of the corporate’s trains since final month. Earlier this week, 28 vehicles derailed in Springfield, Ohio. Officers stated there have been no hazardous supplies on the practice.
