Toxic Train Derailment Was ‘100% Preventable’
Toxic Train Derailment Was ‘100% Preventable’
The train derailment in Ohio was entirely preventable. We have to pray that this situation is resolved and that this never happens again.
From Fox News. The operators of the Norfolk Southern train involved in a toxic derailment in East Palestine, Ohio, earlier this month received a “critical audible alarm message instructing the crew to slow and stop the train to inspect a hot axle,” according to a newly released National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) report Thursday.
Let the IFA community know how to pray for you.
The preliminary report comes as NTSB Chair Jennifer Homendy said during a press conference that the Feb. 3 disaster “was 100% preventable.”
“We call things accidents. There is no accident. Every single event that we investigate is preventable,” she said. “So our hearts are with you know, that the NTSB has one goal and that is safety and ensuring that this never happens again.”
The report said that after hearing a warning from the hot bearing detector on Train 32N, the train’s engineer, who Homendy said already was braking due to a train ahead, “increased the dynamic brake application to further slow and stop the train.” …
“After the train stopped, the crew observed fire and smoke and notified the Cleveland East dispatcher of a possible derailment. …” the NTSB wrote. “Responders arrived at the derailment site and began response efforts.” …
About 15,000 pounds of contaminated soil and 1.1 million gallons of contaminated water have been excavated from the site of the derailment, Norfolk Southern said Monday.
Dozens of rail cars, including 11 carrying toxic chemicals, derailed as the train passed through the town on the Ohio-Pennsylvania border. Officials conducted a controlled release of vinyl chloride three days after the derailment to avoid an explosion.
Homendy announced Thursday that the NTSB will hold a “rare investigative field hearing this spring in East Palestine” to gather more information on the incident. …
Two days after the Feb. 3 derailment, responders extinguished the fire, but five cars carrying “115,580 gallons of vinyl chloride continued to concern authorities because the temperature inside one tank car was still rising,” the NTSB said, leading to the controlled release. …
“Responders scheduled a controlled venting of the five vinyl chloride tank cars to release and burn the vinyl chloride, expanded the evacuation zone to a 1-mile by 2-mile area, and dug ditches to contain released vinyl chloride liquid while it vaporized and burned,” the report said. …
Homendy also said Thursday that the NTSB “had no role in the decision-making or carrying out of the venting burn. …

Besides the political subterfuge aimed at weaponizing all the systems of our nation against us-, the American citizens-,..there is much mismanagement afoot in that Railway-, as questionable oversized hiring packages are offered that are bait to get in new employees-, and then they are overworked -,and then suddenly they are no longer working there.. and this is just one Link in the chain of questionable practices. I heard this information from the attorney Thomas Renz who is well known in The Patriot movement on The Reawakening American tour.. and was also previously a fireman so is familiar with these type of tragedies -,and procedures therein-, and tonight I was listening to him on the Flyover Conservative podcast video- on Rumble.. for today’s date February 25th- he’s explaining it.
Lord as my brothers and sisters here have come before you in Repentance, -seeking your wisdom Lord I also pray and believe and ask that you will have mercy in guiding the hearts and minds of management and Union officials in the railway in Ohio that they would repent from Evil-,and that questionable practices would be exposed and confessed and that things would be set aright in those realms.. and Lord we also know that any opportunity to create Havoc by the globalists to be used and weaponized for their purposes of creating further evil Lord.. we do so need and ask you Lord to convict them in their hearts to turn from these ways Lord.. and help us to stand against the evil of the globalist causing these things to happen.. as our systems of transportation.. our farmland.. and even our Suburban residential lands are being manipulated, taken over, and poisoned, all towards the end of being confiscated by the globalists that they could remove American citizens from the safety of their dwellings -,and their Farms, to Institute their evil agenda.. Lord we pray and believe you will intervene Lord and we see the Revival that is happening and is extolled in the other articles here on IFA about all of the Christian colleges that are being filled with Revival and that America is being filled with the Revival-,and I pray Lord-,that would be your great Army of Love and healing that will pour forth throughout our land-, and. right these wrongs.. but Lord in the meantime.. the citizens of East Palestine Ohio and the surrounding areas and even into neighboring states like pennsylvania.. Lord need healing in the air, in the land, and the water.. and the people need to have new dwellings to move to Lord ..Lord please send your Warrior Angel armies Lord to stand off these evil attacks and I command right now Regional demons over these areas.. Demons of warfare -intimidation, and biological warfare to go back to the pit of Hell In The Authority that you speak through me Lord-. in Jesus name ,..that these regions in our country could be free of this evil demonic stronghold.. in the mighty name of Jesus ,amen. and amen
Father God, there is not a single person that has not been fooled by the evilness and craftiness of Satan. The only human that was not taken in was Jesus. As I read through the words that was full of concern, full of questions, questions who was directing the What to do situation. Jesus we need exposure and the truth behind the train derailment in Ohio. Bring justice to this situation, Lord, and comfort the people, protect them from All chemicals, toxins that is laying on the grounds, the air, the water. Jesus help me to pray what to say as I go before our Father. I used Romans-8-26-28 : expose the truth behind the train derailment in Ohio. Bring justice to this situation, Lord, and comfort the people- I interjected to God in my prayer language-v. 26 In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. 27 And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.. I know so much has hit America over the last few years. But God is trying to give us wisdom which is more than the craftiness of Satan. I believe in my heart that God is making a way, but instead of giving into fear we must reach out to God. He is the one who can bring good and defeat all evil. God, You are faithful in exposures and making us aware of the enemies schemes. But, Jesus so many are not understanding this is a dark spiritual war that are being used by satanic demonic spirits. Jesus My prayer is open their eyes and minds to show them all of these attacks are not from people who care. I lift up Gods presence to hover over Palestine and other communities keeping them safe. I’ve asked you Father so many times to forgive us for lack and complacency in the past years as we were deceived from the enemy, as they try to remove God anyway they can, by doing things to hinder us with fear. BUT we have a start of a revival, with Gods presence, and as we Believe that ONLY God can turn our circumstances around. Our Father only asks for a few things is we show our love to Him, that we learn and read His words, that we pray, honor Him with Praises and -accept That His son Jesus is our Savior- that we simply say I take you as my Savior and believe!! We have eternal life through His name. Father God expose, expose and remove doubt from all hearts; I pray from this moment on that everything this administration and Satan schemes will backfire. I remember in: Matthew 21:12-13
Jesus at the Temple
12 Jesus entered the temple courts and drove out all who were buying and selling there. He overturned the tables of the money changers. Jesus turn the Tables, Turn the Tables. I pray that the presence will save many from any more doubt and they will rise up and become strong! They will say No More. I must say Jesus we ask all to be in your will the words wrote here, if not let me know. I can take your correction. I just get so hurt at times seeing what bad, horrible things we are in our midst of. BE blessed and when you are at a lost for words go to your prayer language Jesus gave us.
I pray we become sold out to God Almighty and allow God’s Spirit to move in this land, I pray we stop hindering the Holy Spirit to do its will and move. I pray and repent for our churches in the East coast who are not allowing God to be God. In Jesus name rain down your fire on all of us and anoint the leaders you choose. Thank you Jesus!!
Father, You know what caused this derailment and the other 1,000 the railroads have had in the past year.
Just like You know what is behind all the food factories that have burned down in America in the past year.
Please expose the truth and help corporations make better decisions.
In Yeshua’s Holy Name.
Yes and Amen.
I pray a miracle from God for the people of Palestine. That God will protect the people and town of any permanent after effects. That justice will be served to those who carelessly allowed this to happen.
In the name of Jesus. Amen
What I find odd is that the NTSB often has an incredible delay in releasing their findings from accidents & crashes etc. This report was release suspiciously quick!
Praying for exposure, honesty & taking full responsibility in thought, word AND action!
This tragedy made me sad even though I knew God allowed it to happen. Our leaders in Washington did nothing to help the situation. If this was something to create political points or money for Washington, there would have been immediate attention placed on it. Our leader, Biden left for Ukraine, while he should have been in Washington seeking help for these people, hurting for what was happening. My solution: PRAY, PRAY, PRAY. Whether a political stunt or not, Thank God for Donald Trump rising to the occasion. God, please help these people and bless them once again with clean air and water to drink.
I wonder where they deposited the toxic soil.
The toxic material was first being sent to Texas and Michigan but that was stopped. Now it will go to 2 sites in Ohio. The soil going to East Liverpool, Ohio and the water to another Ohio location to be stored underground.
They brought toxic soil to Michigan & Houston .
Lord decontaminate that which was contaminated- You can make all things new.
My prayers are with all the families and surrounding area, I live 2-2 1/2 hrs from this derailment sight but if preventable, does that mean all the recent derailments and explosions were preventable as well?? Then we either have a massive amount of incompetent people working or it’s set up to happen 😓🙏Father God please put a hedge of protection around these people, they did not deserve this Lord, and please hold them and where all these tragic “accidents” are taking place, I ask this in Your Almighty, Powerful name Jesus, amen 😓🙏
I have been praying that God’s righteousness and strength would prevail, and that His great comfort and care would be poured out on everyone affected by this tragic situation. I believe God is doing a mighty work in this and His justice will be secure.
This was not 100% preventable. Can you prevent a flat tire on your car 100% of the time. This was a mechanical failure. I pray for the people of East Palestine. But accidents do happen.
Thank you Linda for the beautiful prayer.
True, although the Biden administration could’ve and should have prevented the STOP of aid from FEMA as if it wasn’t a big deal and the length of time is a huge question, just saying 😓🙏
Lord Jesus, we thank you for all the first responders, for the encouraging visit from President Trump, for the unity of the people. Lord, we know that what the enemy meant for evil, You will turn for good. Thank you for your blessing on the people of Ohio.
In Jesus’ name.
The railroad cut back on number of employees while making the trains longer. The employees didn’t have enough time to check on hot bearings.
Lord Jesus please help the people of East Palestine,Ohio after enduring this toxic disaster. Thank you for sending President Trump with supplies to let the citizens know they’ve not been forgotten. In the mighty name of Jesus, we ask this prayer. Amen.
Praying that many will come/turn to Christ as they realize the fragility of life, that blame will stop, right actions and precautions will prevail, and politicization will stop. God uses everything for His glory. God reveals the hearts of mankind. This disaster has affected and will affect many. Father, save souls. Stop greed and division. Bring your peace to us. May we turn to you as a nation. My heart is heavy. Thank you. Amen.
Father, we pray with believers in East Palestine that no weapon forged against them will prosper. We bind all cancer and illness from this release. We pray for Justice and improved safety of the transfer of hazardous materials by rail. We ask this in Jesus Name.
