Paulsboro sheltering order ends
PAULSBORO, N.J. (AP) — Officials say it’s safe to go outside again in Paulsboro, N.J.
Residents were ordered to stay inside and schools were shut down Monday morning after the level of vinyl chloride in the air rose three days after a train derailment ruptured a tanker car carrying the gas.
By 11 a.m., a group of agencies lifted the sheltering order, saying the air was safe again.
Short-term exposure to vinyl chloride is linked to problems such as breathing trouble and dizziness.
