Residents of a SE North Dakota town, Casselton, were evacuated overnight and fortunately no one was hurt; however, the North Dakota Department of Health have issued a warning due to the exposure of the crude oil. The exposure to the burning of crude could cause shortness of breath, coughing, itching and watery eyes.
The train carrying oil sent a huge fireball and clouds of black smoke into the town of Casselton, that even investigators were not able to get close enough to the train cars to estimate the amount of damage caused by the derailment.
Similar to the instance of the Texas gas explosion
, it is important to LEAVE THE AREA IMMEDIATELY, call 911 and stay a safe distance from the explosion due to the unforeseen route it can take.
