Train Wreck

This is just an idea. On Feb. 3, 2023, a derailed train / cars triggered a massive fire, belching toxic smoke into the air far above East Palestine, Ohio. Twenty of the cars contained hazardous materials, including vinyl chloride, which was later set on fire in a controlled burn to prevent a larger explosion. EPA personnel have been on site since the onset of the train derailment, supporting local and state partners as they lead on-the-ground response efforts. There is something here. But would you want to live in this town or how would you sell your home? Health?
