"The Place To Be..." Proud of their community, homes, schools parks...
The fire station, which is on the tracks and only 2-3 football fields away from the accident. The entire town is only a mile wide maybe.
While water, food and clothes are handed out in the church, the clean-up continues in one of the many streams in the city.
The town is riddled with canals and streams, all are now polluted. This one travels by the homes and the high school.
Throughout town people giving out water. Most have run out by 3pm.
A typical East Palestine home. Built next to, then over a stream. This was used for waterwheels in the 1800s
On the left you can see the pollutant.
The site of the accident.
When they mention air testing they are referring to these devices in bags throughout the city. Most were closed or had small openings on the bottom.
The 7' streams have a 2" hoses bringing water in. A 55 gallon drum, with a diaper. It runs through that then back into the stream. I was assured they are changed regularly.
Another shot showing how canals run through the town. This leads to main street and the park. Yes it is polluted.
This shows the evacuation zone dropped onto a map of Lakewood. Westerly wind, which is normal, accident happening at the tressle perhaps the roughest set of track by Clifton Park.
This is with a more of a north westerly with the accident in the center of town.
