In this aerial drone image taken from video and provided by the Sioux County Sheriff's Office, tanker cars carrying crude oil are shown derailed about a mile south of Doon, Iowa, Friday, June 22, 2018. The water towers also will be drained as a precaution, saidRock Valley public information officer Travis Olson. In the meantime, the city is getting its water from the nearby Rock Valley Rural Water system, which Olson says is not in danger of being contaminated by the spill.
The sheriff said the "flood is definitely causing a lot of problems".
Leah Vanderbrink, of Doon, Iowa, said, "Around a quarter to five this morning, our neighbor called and said that a train derailed and had derailed into one of our fields".
Metropolitan Utilities District, which provides the Omaha metro area's drinking water, said it was monitoring the spill. About 31 cars derailed after the tracks reportedly collapsed due to saturation from flood waters from adjacent Little Rock River.
A major part of the cleanup work includes building a temporary road parallel to the tracks to allow in cranes that can remove the derailed and partially-submerged oil cars.
While the cause for the derailment has not been officially determined, a disaster proclamation by the state's governor and local officials blamed flooding caused by two days of heavy rain for eroding the soil beneath the railroad tracks. Williams had earlier said 33 oil cars derailed. Cleanup crews were dispatched to the site.
The Rock River had already carried some oil to Rock Valley by midmorning, said Ken Hessenius with the Iowa Natural Resources Department. That empties into the Missouri River at Sioux City.
Then an unrelated fire at an industrial site about a mile south of town took emergency crews away from the derailment. Reynolds met with the Rock Valley Mayor, Kevin Van Otterloo and examined the areas of the flooded homes as a result of the over-flowing Rock River. The Little Rock flows into the Rock River.
