Crews to drain derailed tanks
Dennis said three tank cars have been moved from the derailment site and are being thoroughly inspected before they are sent back on track to their destination.
None of the hazardous material spilled or leaked from the derailed cars, but officials have closed the area to residents and traffic as a precaution.
If all goes well today, Dennis said crews will transfer the butadiene from the two derailed tankers into other train tank cars this afternoon.
“That’s the quickest way to get the product out of the area and on the way it its destination,” he said.
