Three more hazardous chemicals discovered at Norfolk Southern train derailment site in East Palestine
02/21/2023 // Arsenio Toledo // Views

Three more hazardous chemicals were discovered on the Norfolk Southern train that derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, less than two weeks ago. Experts note that these chemicals are extremely dangerous.

This discovery was found after the Environmental Protection Agency sent a letter to Norfolk Southern stating that the agency had discovered three more dangerous chemicals in the rail cars that were derailed, breached or set on fire. These are:

  • Ethylene glycol monobutyl ether
  • Ethylhexyl acrylate
  • Isobutylene

Sil Caggiano, a hazardous materials specialist, warned that ethylhexyl acrylate is exceptionally worrisome because it is a carcinogen. Contact with ethylhexyl acrylate can cause burning and irritation of the skin and eyes, and breathing it in can irritate the nose and throat and cause coughing and shortness of breath. Isobutylene, meanwhile, is known to cause dizziness and drowsiness when inhaled.

"We basically nuke the town with chemicals so we could get a railroad open," said Caggiano in an interview with a local media outlet. He commented on how crews ignited vinyl chloride that was released into the air by the derailment from five of the 50 affected cars, supposedly to get rid of the chemicals in a controlled burn. But it proved to be a mistake as chemicals were dispersed into the surrounding environment.

Caggiano noted that the authorities told residents they can go back to their homes after being evacuated. (Related: Erin Brockovich tells Ohioans to "get the hell out" of East Palestine "if your senses are telling you to.")


"I was surprised when they quickly told the people they can go back home, but then said if they feel like they want their homes tested they can have them tested," said Caggiano. "I would've far rather they did all the testing [before letting people back home]."

He noted that it is very likely that some of these dangerous chemicals are still present in people's homes and on their personal belongings until they are thoroughly cleaned.

"There's a lot of 'what ifs,' and we're going to be looking at this thing five, 10, 15, 20 years down the line and wondering, 'Gee, cancer clusters could pop up, you know, well water could go bad," he warned.

Caggiano noted that East Palestine residents should immediately get a check-up with their trusted medical practitioner and get it on record how healthy they are at the moment so that, moving forward, they will have documents proving that their health worsened following the train derailment.

"So, if your family survives, they can sue and maybe get some money in a lawsuit that takes forever," said Jason Bermas on his Red Voice Media show, "Reality Rants with Jason Bermas."

"I can't even believe it – but I can, because this is America," he said. He further commented on the silence from the federal government, including Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg's refusal to discuss this train derailment nor the multiple other train derailments that occurred following the one in East Palestine.
