The train derailed Friday night in East Palestine. According to to the
city's Facebook page, a shelter-in-place order has been issued for East
Palestine from Taggart Road to Pleasant Street. An alert sent to people in
the area also said, "An evacuation has been ordered in a 1 mile area of
the James St Crossing. A shelter is available at the East Palestine High

Police are driving through the area and using a loudspeaker to tell
residents to evacuate.

It is not known what caused the derailment or what the train was carrying.

Northfolk Southern released a statement saying:

"We are aware of the derailment in East Palestine, and are coordinating
closely with local first responders while mobilizing our own teams. We
will share more details as they become available."

The fire is sending enough smoke into the atmosphere that it can be seen
on KDKA-TV's weather radar, with the smoke drifting into Beaver County.
