Derailed Train Causes Evacuations In Ohio And Pennsylvania
The evacuation order remains for over 5,000 people that reside in the 1-by-2-mile area surrounding East Palestine Village.
Many residents of Ohio remain under evacuation orders after a train derailed several days ago.
Five cars from the train derailed in a fiery accident on Friday. The flames were releasing toxic fumes into the air and shooting fatal shrapnel as far as a mile away.

As officials work on the controlled release, the evacuation zone surrounding the scene expanded to two states.
