- More than a week after the train derailed, representatives from local, state, and federal agencies met Wednesday night for an open house-style gathering to field questions.
- A crucial organization, Norfolk Southern, wasn’t present, according to officials, despite the event’s intention to provide residents with further information about the environmental impact of the train crash. Before the event, Norfolk Southern declared that no staff would be going because of safety reasons.
“I was hoping to get some real answers from local, state, and Norfolk Southern officials about what is actually going on. But I know that will never happen,” East Palestine resident Jenna Harris said.
