"There was a voluntary evacuation that was done of the scene," Severson said.
"Up to 150 residents were evacuated, voluntarily, for safety reasons.

Severson wasn't sure how fast the train was traveling through the corridor, which crosses over the Mississippi River.
"Some (train cars) are upright, some are sideways, in the water," Severson said.
