President Biden visits East Palestine.

President Biden visits East Palestine, a little more than a year after a Norfolk Southern train derailed there and spilled hazardous chemicals. After meeting with local officials and getting a briefing from the Environmental Protection Agency, the President promised residents that the government would fulfill its obligation and remain in the area until the clean-up efforts were complete. He praised the community’s courage and resilience, insisting the derailment will not define them. And he blasted Norfolk Southern for not taking proper precautions with its dangerous cargo. No one died in the Feb. 3 derailment, but soon people started feeling sick and reported experiencing headaches and other concerns. It led to increased worries and fears of long-term health risks.
