Officials on the scene aren't sure whether floodwater from the swollen Little Rock River caused the cars to leave the tracks. Reynolds visited the derailment site Saturday afternoon as part of a tour of areas hit by recent flooding.

The train's operator BNSF said 14 of the derailed cars had leaked oil, the Lyon County Daily News reported.

(Doon)- Flooding is believed to have been the cause of a train derailment in Lyon county early this (Fri.) morning that has resulted in the evacuation of some residents there.

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.

BNSF spokesman Andy Williams confirmed the details Saturday.

The oil has now been contained, but removing all the oil from the water could take months.

ConocoPhillips spokesman Daren Beaudo says each tanker can hold more than 25,000 gallons.

The Associated Press Tank cars carrying crude oil are shown derailed about a mile south of Doon, Iowa, on Friday.

Some officials have speculated that floodwaters eroded soil beneath the train track. In the meantime, the city is getting its water from the nearby Rock Valley Rural Water system, which Olson said is not in danger of being contaminated by the spill. The river rose rapidly Wednesday after 5 to 7 inches (13 to 18 centimetres) of rain fell Wednesday and a further downpour on Thursday.

The EU border agency Frontex said more than 90 percent of those arriving in Italy, Greece and Spain register for asylum there. Seehofer's "masterplan" on immigration was meant to be the showpiece of the CSU's tough stance against new arrivals.

Four homes near the site have been evacuated.

Olson says the city will use the rural water supply until testing by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources confirms the safety of the city's drinking water.

The National Weather Service says the Rock River is expected to crest later Friday about a foot below the 2014 record of almost 23 feet (7 meters), when several Rock Valley homes were damaged by the floodwater. It joins the Rock River a few hundreds yard west, which courses south into the Big Sioux River.

The derailment also caused concern downstream, including as far south as Omaha, about 150 miles from the derailment site.
