More than 400 residents in Willard have been evacuated from their homes after a dangerous chemical spill overnight on the CSX train tracks on North Main Street. The incident occurred around 11:42 p.m. Residents living within one-half mile of the spill have been evacuated to Willard High School. According the City of Willard's Twitter page, a railcar containing flammable liquid developed a significant hole and the liquid began pouring out of a tank. Reports indicate the train was traveling on the tracks when it derailed. The liquid is believed to be Styrene Monomer, a highly flammable chemical.  Willard Public Safety and CSX clean-up crews are on the scene. The situation is considered very dangerous and the clean-up will take sometime. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration website, Styrene is used to manufacture plastics and rubbers. Exposure to the chemical can cause headache, fatigue, dizziness, confusion, difficulty concentrating and feeling intoxicated. Anyone in need of assistance should contact the Willard Police Department at 419-933-2561.

UPDATE:

City officials held a press conference at 5:30pm Wednesday evening at City Hall. They say they may alllow residents into their homes Wednesday night, but it could be Thursday morning.

As of mid-afternoon wednesday, there is still a faint smell of chemicals in the air.

No one has reported to be injured and many of the evacuees have gone to Willard High School where a shelter has been set up.
