#EastPalestine, #Ohio #NorfolkSouthern train disaster:

Dioxin levels incredibly unsafe.

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

#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.
