Looking at the tracker's location history and google maps, it appears it's in "no man's land"- no nearby towns. Maybe near Swan Lake National Wildlife Refuge. :(

I’m in the lounge at CUS. They just announced #4 is blocking the tracks and they might have to cancel tomorrow’s #3 as well.

They’re doing their best to find hotels and buses and suggested anyone who lives in IL, MN, WI, IA, MI, or IN try to return home. (They’re refunding tickets and helping them find lodging and transportation too.)

Watching "Live" on CNN as a Passenger talks with the CNN Reporter via Phone.

It doesn't sound or look good, report of Injuries but No deaths so far!🤞🥺

One of the Conductors and some of the Passengers are standing on the side of the overturned Cars.Others are walking around on the ROW.
