Lawsuit: Norfolk Southern released 1.1 million pounds of vinyl chloride into air

EAST PALESTINE, Ohio – A new federal lawsuit against Norfolk Southern over the East Palestine train derailment alleges that 1.1 million pounds of vinyl chloride were released into the environment.


The lawsuit was filed Wednesday by the national law firm Morgan & Morgan in U.S. District Court's Northern District of Ohio, one of six suits the railroad company is facing.

Authorities and Norfolk Southern have not publicly stated how much vinyl chloride was released following the Feb. 3 train derailment and ensuing controlled burn of chemicals on several cars.

The law firm based its calculation on the total volume of five 25,800 gallon DOT 105nope tank cars carrying 8.6 pounds per gallon of vinyl chloride.


The suit claims "Norfolk Southern blew holes in its vinyl chloride cars, and dumped 1,109,400 pounds of cancer causing vinyl chloride directly into the environment," while trying to extinguish fires. The firm claims that Norfolk Southern released more vinyl chloride into the environment in one week than all industrial emitters combined did in 2021.


Vinyl chloride is a gas used to make polyvinyl chloride hard plastic resin in plastic products and is associated with an increased risk of liver cancer and other cancers, according to the federal government's National Cancer Institute.

Officials warned the controlled burn of cars containing the gas would send toxic gas phosgene and hydrogen chloride into the air.

Why are they allowing the criminals access to the crime scene?

Seems like the right thing. However, I am skeptical of everything so was this all planned from the start? We will see……
