Derailed Train Cleanup On Hold

(Eunice, Louisiana-AP) - The ordeal is still not over for nearly 3,000 people who have been away from their homes in Eunice, Louisiana, since Saturday. Before they can return, two of the dozens of tanker cars that derailed near the town will have to be intentionally blown up. That should happen sometime soon. Pressure has been building inside the cars since the accident, when several other cars exploded, causing a fire that was put out only Tuesday. Crews were then able to get close to the wreckage, and last night they discovered the intact cars. After the chemical cars are detonated, federal inspectors still have to give the all clear before the displaced residents can return.
