On Tuesday afternoon, a train carrying 30,000 gallons of propane derailed in Manatee County, Florida. Hazmat crews have been called to the scene to assist with the cleanup. As of now, there are no injuries. The cause of the derailment is still under investigation.

Florida authorities say the train derailment caused at least 150 feet of track damage, and it will take crews between one and three days to remove the propane from the derailed train cars.

ABC7 reported that South Manatee and Cedar Hammock fire departments told businesses and residents in the Manatee area that they may have to evacuate if conditions change.

Stew Peters has highlighted train derailments and various other supply chain accidents that have been happening across The United States of America in 2023.

Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg have blamed President Trump for America’s train derailments in 2023. However, the usually liberal Washington Post Fact checkers wrote Monday morning, “From our analysis, none of the regulatory changes made during the Trump administration at this point can be cited as contributing to the accident.”

President Trump took to Truth Social Monday to attack Biden and Buttigieg. “Wow, is The Washington Post becoming legit. They just reported that the weak and totally ineffective Secretary of Transportation, Pete ‘BUTTedgeedge,’ LIED when he said that the Trump Administrations great and effective reduction in regulations, a giant job producer, had NOTHING to do with the East Palestine Train Derailment. It was just more Dem DISINFORMATION in order to deflect from their gross incompetence,” wrote the former president.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has yet to comment on the Manatee County, Florida, train derailment.
