January 26, 2011 — Clean-up crews are relying on the weather to clear the wreck from Wednesday's train derailment near Severn Falls.
The cause for a train derailment near Severn Falls, Ontario Wednesday is yet to be determined. But clean-up crews are relying on the weather to clear the wreck by Thursday night.
Scattered flurries are in the forecast, but officials say that shouldn't hamper clean-up efforts.
30 residents were forced from their homes Wednesday afternoon and were moved to the Coldwater Community Centre as a precaution.
CP Rail decided to remove the tanker containing propane from the area and confirmed that it was not leaking at the derailment site.
The crash occurred at around 3:20 a.m. after an eastbound train derailed alongside another train that that was parked on an adjacent track.
