The mainstream media is now reporting that the release of chemicals in the Ohio train wreck on February 3d was more serious than initially reported. Online conspiracy theories have postulated that the balloon stories of the last month, were an attempt by the major media sources to distract attention from the wreck and chemical release.

Chemicals released included ethylene glycol monobutyl ether, ethylhexyl acrylate and isobutylene were also in the rail cars that were derailed, authorities now say.

"There were more toxic chemicals aboard the train that derailed in Ohio than originally reported, new data shows," writes ABC News, for example.

"State health officials were initially concerned about the presence of vinyl chloride, a highly volatile colorless gas produced for commercial uses, which spilled after about 50 cars on a Norfolk Southern Railroad train derailed in East Palestine, Ohio, on Feb. 3 while traveling from Illinois to Pennsylvania. Other toxins, like phosgene and hydrogen chloride, were emitted in large plumes of smoke during a controlled release and burn, prompting officials to issue mandatory evacuation orders in a one-mile radius of the crash site."

"A list of the cars that were involved in the derailment and the products they were carrying released by Norfolk Southern reveal several more toxic chemicals that were released into the air and soil following the crash."
