Liquid propane tanks derail in Pascagoula

Four CSX Railroad cars hauling liquid propane derailed her earlier this morning. The cars are laying on their sides but no gas is leaking, said Earl Etheridge, on-site coordinator for the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality. How it happened remains unclear, but Etheridge said the Pascagoula Fire Department was called around 4:30 a.m. It happened in a train yard south of Walmart.
