Several states are holding primary elections Tuesday, including some contests that could prove pivotal in determining whether Republicans or Democrats will control the Senate next year.

The Ohio race and others could put Trump’s influence to the test. Read on for a preview of some of the major elections on Tuesday.

Some Commuting Routes Reopen As Crews Work To Clear Train Derailment « CBS Pittsburgh

Commuters got a bit of good news as crews continue to clear debris from a train derailment near Station Square.

As of noon, four containers and at least two rail cars remained on the hillside. Norfolk Southern is hoping to have the mainline back open within 24 to 36 hours. They will also help the Port Authority with reopening the Light Rail tracks.

Earlier, a container was pushed down the hillside and detergent started to leak out. Once the containers fall down the hillside, they will be pushed on the rail line.

City officials said they’ll need to move the remaining containers and then push them down the hill, too.

As for all of the cargo, like Listerine mouthwash and diapers inside the containers the question is what happens to it?

“Some of it obviously got destroyed as it was coming down the hillside. Right now if you were able to see the other side, they’re going through the one container on the top of the last car. Theyre going through that trying to unload it to try to lessen the weight. If successful in bringing the containers down, they’ll try to go through here if not it will be flatbedded to their facility and they’ll go through it,” Public Safety Director Wendell Hissrich said.

After the containers were removed, crews used a large crane to pick up a rail car and placed it on the ground nearby.

Last night, there was one injury. A contractor sliced his arm on a metal chain. He was taken to the hospital, received stitches and was released.

The Panhandle Bridge was closed while crews pulled down containers Tuesday morning, but it has reopened.

More information on the detours can be found at PortAuthority.org.

Largest wildfire in California history still growing – ABC News

The Mendocino Complex was still growing as it broke the record set last December. The Thomas Fire killed two people, burned 440 square miles, and destroyed more than 1,000 buildings in Southern California before being fully contained Jan. 12.

The Mendocino Complex, which is 30 percent contained, has been less destructive to property than some of the other wildfires in the state because it is mostly raging in remote areas. But officials say it threatens 11,300 buildings and some new evacuations were ordered over the weekend as the flames spread.
