Evacuation Order Lifted, Outreach Center Open in Willard
WILLARD, Ohio — An evacuation order has been lifted in Willard, about five days after a train derailment caused a chemical spill.
The accident happened late Tuesday night. A train car started leaking a flammable chemical called Styrene Monomer.
Nearly 300 households were evacuated, and people were sent to shelters.
Clean-up crews have been at the scene for days removing contaminated soil.
An outreach center on Conwell Avenue will be open through 6 p.m. Sunday and again throughout the week to assist residents with claims for financial loss.
