Derailed train in Washington leaks hazardous chemical, disrupts rail service
A CSX freight train derailed in northeastern Washington on Sunday, spilling hazardous material near a subway station and disrupting commuter rail and long-distance Amtrak passenger trains but causing no injuries, authorities said.

Thirteen rail cars were strewn across the tracks at the derailment site in the early morning incident, District of Columbia Fire Department photos showed. A ruptured tank car likely leaked several hundred gallons of sodium hydroxide, a caustic substance used to produce household products including paper and detergent, before the leak was plugged, Deputy Fire Chief John Donnelly told a news conference.

The fire department did not order evacuations around the site of the accident, which happened about 3 miles (5 km) from the White House near the elevated Rhode Island Avenue station.

Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser said it would take some time for CSX (CSX.O) and emergency workers to clear the overturned cars and clean up the spill.

"There's nothing running on that track tomorrow," Bowser said.

She added that no cause for the accident had been determined, but a federal investigation into the derailment had begun. The derailed train was traveling from Cumberland, Maryland, to Hamlet, North Carolina. It was made up of three locomotives and 175 rail cars.

What precautions should be taken with such a spill?

What can cause a deadly explosion?

Bottle Explosion (Sodium Hydroxide and Aluminum in a Bottle) - Does the aluminum barium from chemtrails have an effect?

Explosive Reaction of Sodium Hydroxide and Sulphuric Acid - Warning!

This is extremely dangerous reaction of hot Sulphuric acid and highly concentrated sodium hydroxide solution, both very corrosive and dangerous! Reaction is explosive and both liquids are splashed.
