Evacuation Area Expanded

Officials have expanded the evacuation area around the site of a leaking rail car on Cincinnati's eastside.

Residents have been ordered out of homes within one-half mile of the tanker that is leaking styrene, a highly flammable liquid.

Several city buses have been sent to help with the evacuation.

A police spokesman says the evacuation area was enlarged this morning because of a shift in the wind, which could carry hazardous fumes.
