NEWS: Weeks after the #EastPalestineOH "controlled burn," residents are experiencing rashes, nosebleeds, & other symptoms.

"My face was burning but it didn’t freak me out until I looked in the mirror,” -EP resident Kristin Bagglia told us.

Kristin also had rashes on her leg/foot after showering. Her 8-year-old son has also been sick--she took him to ER last week for nosebleeds. Both of them were diagnosed w/ chemical inhalation. **HER WATER IS CONNECTED TO EP CITY WATER— which the governor and EPA declared safe.

Vinyl Chloride in Drinking-water from World Health Organization.

"soluble in almost all organic solvents. It is heavier than air & can spread over the ground, creating an exposure long distances away from the original source.…
"In the atmosphere, vinyl chloride exists almost entirely in the vapour phase & reacts with hydroxyl radicals and ozone, ultimately forming formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, hydrochloric acid & formic acid; its half-life is 1–4 days."
"When released to the ground, vinyl chloride is not adsorbed onto soil but migrates readily to groundwater, where it may be degraded to carbon dioxide and chloride ion or remain unchanged for several months or even years".

🧵FYI this is the time, after 2 weeks of coverage, when mainstream media moves off of a catastrophic story like #EastPalestineOH—when the cameras leave & coverage shifts from hourly/daily to occasional updates to abandon the story altogether. This happened w/ #FlintWaterCrisis.
Mainstream media outlets typically only care when they deem an URGENCY to a catastrophe—when it's new and the flames, or poison water, or adverse health symptoms seem most dire. In my experience, once they predictably stop covering and caring, is when the REAL coverup begins...
That coverup is a mixture of government, media, and in the case of East Palestine, the corporate (Norfolk Southern), pushing forward flawed testing in order to provide the "all clear" sign and sweep things under the rug. The void of media coverage—particularly ON-THE-GROUND...

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.

Hello @OhioEPA and @EPA I am not a smart person. Can you please dumb down your #EastPalestineOH Surface Water Contamination reports so they are readable by lay people?

How about a 1 page surface water analysis for creeks?

I asked Mayor Conway to do this in person Wednesday.
Here's how dumb I am. I cant even interpret the raw data below (partial screenshots). I must be an absolute moron, as I cant interpret if the results (measured amount) are safe.
I think this is the secret decoder ring. But man, this is a lot of work to answer "are the creeks safe to kayak in?"

EXCLUSIVE: Our @louisd217 confronts Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine about his response to #EastPalestineOH train explosion.

"I didn't say that," DeWine denies when asked why he said he didn't call Pres. Biden back after Biden offered "anything you need" in response to train explosion.

🧵UPDATE: I just spoke with an East Palestine OH resident who’s house was deemed too toxic for her family to return to. “We are getting sicker and sicker. An entire community is being poisoned slowly in front of the nation.” #EastPalestineOH

Norfolk Southern has repeatedly offered her to pay for her relocation—AFTER she spoke out to national news. She told me her whole family is sick as are her neighbors throughout the town. Bronchitis, vomiting, nosebleeds, dizziness, splitting headaches to name a few symptoms…
When I asked her what she thought of national media like @nytimes and those outside of the town minimizing the catastrophe and attacking people equating the explosion to Chernobyl—she broke down in tears. “The news isn’t telling the truth…EVERYONE is sick. We need help now.”

What if I told you that #EastPalestineOH incident has eerily similar parallels to a movie called, "White Noise" on Netflix?
If you aren't aware of what is going on in #EastPalestineOH, here is a pretty comprehensive threadception.
#EastPalestineOH is finally picking up steam by social media, which is great considering the MSM doesn't want to touch this ecological catastrophe with a 10ft pole.

What I'd like to know is why does this parallel so closely to this movie? #WhiteNoise
