VIDEO | Ohio Train Derailment: latest from East Palestine and the cleanup effort

The latest update from the Ohio Train Derailment in East Palestine.

EPA Administrator Michael Regan visited East Palestine today (Tuesday) for the third time since the disaster three weeks ago, as response efforts shift from their emergency" phase to long-term remediation. NBC's George Solis has more from East Palestine, Ohio.

The train derailment, which happened back on Feb. 3, also resulted in a controlled release of chemicals amid explosion concerns involving some of the impacted rail cars.

Late last week, President Biden ordered federal teams from FEMA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to conduct door-to-door visits at homes throughout the East Palestine community to check on residents and their needs amid ongoing health concerns.
