Roughly 230,000 gallons of oil spilled in Doon


DOON, IA (KSFY) – An estimated 230,000 gallons of crude oil spilled into flood waters in Northwestern Iowa, near Doon.

Andy Williams, the spokesperson for BNSF, says that 14 out of 32 of the derailed train cars spilled the oil into the flood waters.  

Nearly half – 100,000 gallons – of the spilled oil has been contained with booms near the site, but some of the crude oil did make its way into the floodwaters and nearby rivers.

Nearly one hundred hazmat and railroad workers worked through the night to clean up the oil.

Railroad crews have also built a 1/8 mile gravel road out to the cars to clean up the mess.

  1. So if I spill ten gallons of fuel, I get the shit fined out of me. How much were these assholes fined????

    There would be 15 fire crew show up, cops and a godamn hazard waste containment unit breathing down my neck.

    I thought those niggers were building a mthrfking pipeline somewhere.
