BNSF: Train Derailed in Iowa; Estimated 230,000 Gallons of Oil Spilled


A railway official said on Saturday that he had been cast into the flood waters of about 230,000 gallons (870,619 liters) of crude oil at the northwestern corner of Iowa, after the train ran out.

BNSF spokesman Andy Williams said oil of 32 of the 32 oil tankers south of Doon in Lyon infiltrated the flood waters of the inflated Little Rock River. Williams once said that 33 oil carts were out of the way.

“Nearly half of the spills – an estimated 100,000 gallons (378,530 liters) – have bombs exploding near the rails and an additional bom about 5 miles (8.05 kilometers) down the road. Skimmers and vacuum trucks were used to extract the oil. The teams will then use equipment to separate the oil from the water.

“In addition to focusing on the recovery of the environment, there are constant observations for any potential condition that could affect workers and society, and they have not found any worries until now,” Williams said.

The authorities were still unable to determine the reason for the raid on Friday morning, but a catastrophe posted by Gov. Kim Reynolds in Lyon and three other countries exposed it to floods. Reynolds visited the rafting area on Saturday evening as a part of the floods of the regions affected by the flood disaster.

Some officials have speculated that flood waters have eroded the soil under the soil road. The nearby Little Rock River rose rapidly after heavy rains on Wednesdays and Thursdays.

An important part of the cleaning operation involves building a transitional road parallel to the rails to allow for cranes that can lift oil trolleys that have been raided and partially submerged. Williams said he hoped the authorities would reach the cars on Saturday.

The train carried tarpaulin to ContacoPhillips from Alberta, Canada to Stroud, Oklahoma. ConocoPhillips spokesman Daren Beaudo said that each tanker could hold more oil than 25,000 gallons (20,817 imperial gallons).

Beaudo noted on Saturday that oil carts run by rafts are a model known as DOT117R, indicating they are newer or safer and helping to prevent fugitives in the event of an accident.

At the same time, the crack caused downward concerns, including about 150 miles (240 kilometers) from the remote south of Omaha, Nebraska. The leak reached the Rock River, which joined the Great Sioux River before it slammed into the Missouri River in Sioux City.

Omaha’s public water network – Metropolitan Utilities District – said he watched the pumps he used to draw drinking water from the Missouri River.

Rock Valley, Iowa, closed the water well just during the accident hours, just south of the air. It plans to evacuate its wells and clean up and use a rural water system until it proves that the water is safe.
