The West Point evacuation order has been lifted, said Doug Finlay, deputy director of Hardin County Emergency Management.
The railroad cars have been stabilized, he said. The 1.2-mile evacuation that had emptied the Hardin County town was lifted along with a five-mile "shelter in place" requirement.
Work continued Sunday to manage the site of the derailment which occurred around 6 a.m. last Monday near Katherine Station Road in southern Jefferson County. Workers spent Sunday repositioning two hydrogen fluoride-filled cars which were overturned, Finlay said.
