Wenck, M., Van Sickle, D., and Drociuk, D., et al. (2007). Rapid Assessment of Exposure to Chlorine Released from a Train Derailment and Resulting Health Impact. Public Health Reports. 122(6): 784–792.
In 2005, in Graniteville, South Carolina, a train carrying three tanker cars of liquid chlorine under pressure derailed and released nearly 60 tons of chlorine until a patch could be applied. The authors describe patient characteristics, how they were transported (and where), symptoms, and components for planners to consider incorporating.
