Sioux County, Iowa deputies worked to clear a massive train derailment near Alton, Iowa early Sunday morning.
According to a post on the department's Facebook page, nobody got hurt and no hazardous materials leaked into the air.
A spokesperson with Union Pacific says the train included 95 cars en route from Mankato, Minnesota to North Platte, Nebraska. Approximately 38 cars derailed.
The train was hauling industrial sand and soybean oil. Union Pacific says one or more cars may be releasing industrial sand into the Floyd River.
The Sioux County Sheriff's department also posted drone video showing the wreckage. People were asked to avoid the area.
