Train derailment in Paulsboro, New Jersey, Nov. 30, 2012
PAULSBORO, N.J. (AP) - More New Jersey residents are being ordered to leave their homes after a train derailment last week released a hazardous gas into the air.
But officials say that doubling the size of the evacuated area to include about 100 more homes means they can lift a shelter-in-place order that had covered the entire town of Paulsboro.
The evacuation order is expected to last until Sunday, a day longer than previously expected.
Paulsboro's schools are to remain closed.
