Cameraman Jeremy Levine checked in from the bus somewhere between those locations last night. He was particularly struck with the story of homeowners in Endicott, N.Y.

Investigation into the extent of the contamination is ongoing.

The tour continues throughout the week. For more information, visit the Environmental Justice for All website.
