🚨"Please declare an emergency declaration—save our kids!" -sick #EastPalestine residents shouted at OH statehouse as they were REMOVED. "If @GovMikeDeWine does not [declare emergency], there a lot of residents who can't get help."

4 months after Norfolk Southern DETONATION...
@GovMikeDeWine #EastPalestine residents continue to suffer from bloody noses, nausea, dizziness, burning eyes, chemical burns, sinus issues, headaches, sore throat, numb lips & tongue, fatigue and even blood coming from their rectums...
@GovMikeDeWine Yet, the EPA continues to tell residents air, water, and soil testing are producing safe levels (despite EPA officials acknowledging their equipment can't detect all contamination levels). And Gov. DeWine, inexplicably, refuses to declare a state of emergency...

Amazing day in the field!

Did the 7 hour drive and put 7 hours of field work in, day 1.

Our 6th research visit to #EastPalestine #Ohio area has begun.

Sulfur Run, where the chemicals first entered waterways from The Norfolk Southern #disaster is practically free of water in some places.

Some places are flowing others seemingly with stagnant pools. Image
Sheen still exudes from the Sulfur Run creek banks in places where we visited.

We did see free floating sheen (not from us disturbing) after the confluence of Sulfur Run and Leslie Run.

The Ohio River became known to be as the “River Jordan.”
Symbolizing the path to the promised land.

The Jordan River flows through the Sea of Galilee & on to the Dead Sea.

Jordan & the Golan Heights border the river on the East.

President Trump recognizes the Golan Heights as a part of the State of Israel.

In return, Benjamin Netanyahu names a new settlement in Golan Heights, “Trump Height”.

🟢Back to the Area 🟢 to collect follow up samples in & around #EastPalestine #Ohio. This is our team's 4th trip to the area since mid-February. Updates will be posted below.

Also looking forward to the #science & community sharing event in the coming weeks (in the works).

Visited a home today along Sulfur Run.

It’s still contaminated.

After moving rocks, the PID read 2.1 ppm (not ppb) coming off the creek.

Background in air was 0-3 ppb
Contractors (paid by someone) seem to have left garbage in Sulfur Run. They didn’t clean up. You can’t tell me the sorbent pad is going to be used again.

Who is overseeing them?

#EastPalestine, #Ohio #NorfolkSouthern train disaster:

Dioxin levels incredibly unsafe.

I continue to question why we can only get solid reporting on Ohio from Britain.

#dioxin

theguardian.com/us-news/2023/m…
#DemocracyNow has been reporting on #EastPalestine, Ohio, but often following The Guardian because the best information is there.

NPR unable to make links between East Palestine and #CopCity in Atlanta, so they're reporting is almost useless.

On TikTok, #NickDrom has good info.

Unsurprisingly, nobody wants the waste from #EastPalestine ... a 🧵reuters.com/world/us/epa-t…
Nearly 7 million gallons of waste water and 9.2 million pounds of soil and solid waste have been shipped off site. ema.ohio.gov/media-publicat…
another 53 million pounds of soil are piled up, and urgently need to be out of town, where residents still suffer from headaches, "burning of the skin", respiratory issues, and anxiety. ema.ohio.gov/media-publicat…

🧵Stitching together the truth. One thread at a time. 🚨On the Board of Directors for the company that makes #Moderna's #COVID19 vaccine are many names I've looked into. One name I hadn't yet investigated is one of MOST important: Mitch Daniels Jr.🔍
1/8🧵If you're from Indiana, you probably already know Mitch Daniels. Listed as a founding director for Resilience, he's best known for being the 49th Governor of Indiana but tbh that's the least important detail of Daniels.
2/8🧵 His position as director for Moderna's manufacturing company couldn't be more sinister. Here's 5⃣ main reasons why: 1.) He started the first 13yrs of his career working for Senator Richard Lugar, of bio-lab/Lugar Center in Tbilisi, Georgia.

Today, at 10am EST the U.S. Senate @EPWCmte holds a hearing about the #chemicalspill #fires #disaster caused in #EastPalestine #Ohio in Room SD-406

Will officials by asked why they’re not testing for chemicals we found? Officials lack full transparency.
epw.senate.gov/public/
This isn’t a classic chemical spill. Officials set hazardous chemicals -on fire- likely creating 100s-1000s of other materials.

You have to throw the kitchen sink at the chemical screening /identification problem. They have not done that, yet.

Officials must course correct.
When you review the county drinking water well testing data they didn’t test for a number of the chemicals in the creek.

So, what was the purpose of testing? Spending that $? Telling residents water is safe?

Why did these agencies choose not to be thorough in their approach?

🚨 Field Work, March 3-4, 2023 🚨

This week @PurdueAg @PurdueEngineers Prof. @caitlin_h2o, as well as students Rasul & @aliya_ehde visited the #Ohio and #Pennsylvania to sample creeks and understand "what's changed since last week".

Observations are below.

During the trip, the team collected creek water from creeks upstream of the train derailment site, including in #Pennsylvania.

They also went to several other creeks in Ohio, no "sheens" were observed there.

Today, I asked @OSHA_DOL to deploy #worker safety teams to evaluate past/ongoing chemical exposures to cleanup workers in #EastPalestine #Ohio.

Worker and local air monitoring should be considered.

I'm running on 4 hours sleep, but felt it was important to get this to OSHA ASAP.

Around 9 p.m., a Norfolk Southern train carrying 151 cars derailed in East Palestine.

Fifty cars derailed, the @NTSB reported. The crash sparked a fire, and 11 of the cars contained hazardous chemicals, which soared into the air and onto the ground.

#EastPalestine Mayor Trent Conaway declared a state of emergency.

Residents in East Palestine and surrounding communities were asked to leave the area.

The @OhioEPA should comment on this ASAP.

#EastPalestine OH is one of the most vulnerable areas of the county for Ground Water Pollution Potential.

Short version: yellow on map means you are MORE susceptible to ground water pollution from surface sources. Source: Ohio DNR
#EastPalestine is YELLOW bigly. That means VERY susceptible to ground water pollution.

TRUST THE SCIENCE Original document here 👇:

This conclusion was derived using the D.R.A.S.T.I.C. method which accounts for:
But the EPA gonna gaslight you like you're a dumb person.

Why is Frank so focussed on the groundwater? Creeks interact with aquifers (underground water).

My dummy interpretation of this geological information is that there is direct interaction between the creeks and the water aquifer under #EastPalestine P49
ohiodnr.gov/static/documen…
Please keep in mind, I'm not a geologist. But I can read. So I am sharing my readings with you. Do your homework. Ask the questions. Hold people accountable. They haven't been truthful so far.
Oops another #EPA typo ! The Potable City water pump intakes may be 56-83 feet below surface, but the ground water is only 18 feet below surface. How do I know? US Geological Surveys. nwis.waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/gwlev…

Sect Buttigieg was in #EastPalestine Thursday. Here's a fact-checking thread.
During Trump's presidency,there were 5,103 train derailments in the US. Neither Trump nor Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao visited any sites of those derailments. Not one. Unlike Buttigieg.
1/🧵
During Trump's presidency there were 58,920 transportation-related hazardous waste leaks/spills resulting in 26 deaths and many additional injuries.
Neither Trump nor Chao went to these accident sites. Trump didn't call in FEMA, like Biden has, either.
2/🧵
Fox News fact-checked Trump and points out Trump officials never visited train derailment sites and notes accidents that resulted in fatalities during Trump years.
