Evacuation of 100 Homes After Train Derailment

LAWTELL, La. (AP) — Some 100 homes in Lawtell, La., remain evacuated as crews clean up the site of a 26-car train derailment. The Union Pacific train went off the tracks yesterday afternoon, and one of the railcars began leaking the dangerous chemical sodium hydroxide. An engineer and a conductor were the only people on the train. They were not hurt.
