EAST PALESTINE, Ohio — Residents of East Palestine have suffered from Norfolk Southern’s toxic train derailment in Ohio will have an opportunity to ask any questions during a “resource fair” hosted by the Environmental Protection Agency on Thursday.
The EPA said the event — which will take place from 6-9 p.m. in the East Palestine High School gym — will give residents a chance to “talk face-to-face and ask questions of representatives from federal, state and local agencies.” “
On Monday, Norfolk Southern released a six-point plan to “immediately improve the safety of its operations” after the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released a preliminary report on the East Palestine incident. You can read all the details of this plan HERE. The announcement came just days later another Norfolk Southern train derailed Saturday in Springfield, Ohio.
