Last year’s toxic train derailment is East Palestine affected the atmosphere in up to 16 states, according a recent study.

From The Epoch Times. Precipitation carried toxic emissions to as many as 16 states after the February 2023 Norfolk Southern train derailment in East Palestine, Ohio that triggered a blaze of hazardous chemicals, according to an environmental study.

Measurements of the chemical compounds found in precipitation showed that the area impacted spanned from the Midwest through the Northeast, according to a study by scientists with the National Atmospheric Deposition Program (NADP) at the University of Wisconsin.

The chemical debris could have traveled as far north as Canada and as far south as North Carolina, according to the study, published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Environmental Research Letters. The study found high chloride concentrations and pH levels.

“The robust measurements of the NADP network clearly show that the impacts of the fire were larger in scale and scope than the initial predictions, and likely due to the uplift from the fire itself entraining pollutants into the atmosphere,” the study said. …

‘Volatile Organic Compounds’

The accident, at 9 p.m. on February 3, 2023, involved approximately 50 train cars, including 38 that derailed, the study said.

Eleven of the derailed cars were carrying “volatile organic compounds (VOCs)” that included vinyl chloride, the study said, that burned for several days, leading to reports of contaminated water and noxious odors, the study said. …

The [NADP] collects precipitation samples weekly from about 260 sites in North America.

“Using these measurements, we examined the precipitation chemistry and wet deposition of precipitation acidity and selected inorganic constituents for indication of the accident areal impact on atmospheric chemistry,” the study said.

NADP compared data from the previous 11 years to the week of the train derailment and the following week. …

The 30 samples from NADP sites in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and New York, indicated that contamination had directly impacted those areas. …

Google pays $300 on a regular basis. My latest salary check was $8600 for working 10 hours a week on the internet. My younger sibling has been averaging $19k for the last few months, and he constantly works approximately 24 hours. I’m not sure how simple it was once I checked it out.

This is my main concern………. https://eorkshigh.blogspot.com

Father, this is so sad! I pray you would clear the air and the land. Heal the people. Draw us to repentance while we view these awful happenings, knowing you are allowing them to help us see that you are the answer. Cleanse our nation and may we draw near to you.

Father God, I pray that you would send your heavenly host to protect the air, the water and the environment around the 16 states that were effected by the Ohio train derailment. In Jesus’s name.
