Sample article from our Logistic & Supply Chain

November 22, 2023 (press release) –

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – November 22, 2023 - At approximately 2:23 p.m. today, a CSX train derailed north of Livingston, KY. Preliminary information indicates that at least 16 cars were involved, including two molten sulphur cars that have been breached and have lost some of their contents which is on fire. When molten sulphur burns it is known to release sulphur dioxide. Specialized equipment is being deployed to conduct air monitoring in the area. CSX is in close contact with the Rockcastle county emergency teams as they continue to assess the situation and we appreciate their swift response. We will work together with the local authorities to secure the area and safety is our top priority as we develop a recovery plan. CSX encourages residents in proximity to the incident who are concerned about their safety to utilize the lodging that the company has secured in Mt. Vernon, KY. In addition to the hotels, the CSX team is working with local restaurants to provide meals for affected residents. CSX is covering the cost for both. 

Concerned residents can call CSX for info at 1-800-805-9840. Updates regarding this incident will be posted at www.csx.com/response.
