Residents from 46 homes in the Sturgeon Valley region were evacuated Sunday afternoon after 12 CN rail cars derailed north of Sturgeon Road at about 1:45 p.m. Officials confirmed a dozen loaded cars carrying crude oil derailed, and two of the cars leaked almost 100 litres of oil.

Those leaks have been stopped, CN spokesperson Patrick Waldron said in a statement Sunday evening.

"I was just having lunch and then we heard this insane noise and then I looked out the window and all the cars were stacked together", Gosselin said on Sunday.

Patrick Potter and his roommate, Teri Gosselin, said it happened behind their backyard.

RCMP had asked residents in the River's Edge and Noroncal neighbourhoods to evacuate as a precaution, although police didn't believe there was a danger to the public, Const. Kathleen Sossen told CBC News.

Sturgeon County officials say it will take a couple of days to clean up after a CN train derailed Sunday afternoon.

"We are mobilizing all of our resources to respond to this incident and are working alongside local emergency responders as we conduct a full assessment of the situation", the company said.

On Monday, County officials said the clean-up was expected to continue throughout the day, including removing the damaged cars and fixing tracks damaged in the incident. More resources such as unsafe goods teams, environment teams, safety experts investigators and equipment are being mobilized, Waldron said.
