Train Carrying Fuel Oil Derails, Spills In Mississippi
Reuters via Rig Zone ^ | January 31, 2014 | Therese Apel

Posted on 02/01/2014 6:36:58 PM PST by thackney

A Canadian National Railway Co train carrying fuel oil and other hazardous materials derailed and was leaking in southeast Mississippi on Friday, forcing the evacuation of nearby residents, officials said.

No one was injured in the incident which involved the derailment of 21 railcars, eight of which have spilled their contents, a Canadian National Railway spokesman said.

Several of the cars were carrying hazardous materials including fertilizer and methanol, but there was no fire, he said.

The accident, the latest in a string of North American train derailments over the past year, occurred in the city limits of New Augusta in Perry County, near a mobile home park, according to the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency.

Emergency services were on the scene and responding to the accident, local officials said.

Anyone know if there has been an excessive number of derailments?

Title is misleading, it makes you think fuel oil spiled in the missisippi river.

Because it’s Reuters I assume deception, so long as it makes the US look bad. and fuel oil leaking into a river makes the US look like greedy careless capitalists and poor stewards of the environment, which are all capital crimes to liberals.

Quite a stretch. I find the title completely appropriate and would read the same using other states.

“String of derailments...”

Uh, Rooters, there are, on average, 1-3 derailments in the US EVERY DAY, each of the past few years; and that is far FEWER than the previous decade; and that was fewer than 20+ years ago.

I looked up the statistic during the ND accident a short while back, but don’t have the link handy. It was official federal numbers.
