According to medias, at least 50,000 gallons of crude oil were released after a train derailed in downtown Lynchburg, Virginia on April 30, 2014.

Some of this crude oil spilled in the James river and took fire. Consequences on the ecosystem are still unknown, but 50,000 gallons of crude oil are a lot and can trigger a lot of damages.
