Initial estimates from the derailment we reported yesterday have been reduced but the impact is still clear: 7,000 gallons of fuel, 77 gallons of sulfuric acid, 10 gallons of oil, 1,346 tons of coal and 1,150 tons of monoammonium phosphate we released from the derailment. Florida DEP officials indicate there doesn't appear to be any impact to waterways but investigation and clean-up activities are still ongoing.
