Here's an ugly one.

A train derailed about 30 miles southwest of me on Monday. They're still trying to untangle it, but there's a hitch. There's 2 tank cars full of sodium hydroxide and 2 cars full of hydrogen fluoride (hydrofluoric acid), not to mention a tanker of solvent that split and caught fire. Plus, in the photo, the water on the right side of the pic is the Ohio River.

what do they mean by "repositioned "?
 
Bring all the empty jugs you can carry. I really hope that's not where the guy living down by the river in a van is parked. Lol....WOW! What a mess!

A couple of the clean up crew members went to the hospital with minor injuries. No citizens hurt, but displaced.

None of the SH or HF spilled that I know of. They have got those cars uprighted and moved to the staging area.
