Hazmat teams, doctors and nurses from area hospitals were sent there and three counties worth of deputies responded to the chemical plant. I work in the building next door to this plant and we were all evacuated as well. They blocked off several city blocks around the plant and still have it barricaded now. One of the city workers blocking off a street said it was some sort of acid spill in the plant. About a dozen people were taken away in ambulances.

We're right on the edge of the blizzard, we only got an inch of snow and it's already stopped. Everywhere south, dumped on, everywhere north, nothing.

How come they very rarely tell people what the chemical is?

I knoes. I'm wondering if it's hydrofluoric...something used in plating?

I'm still trying to find that out. The most recent word is that sheriff's department still trying to figure out what chemical it was. How do they not know that by now?

Looks like hydrochloric acid spill was the cause. Fumes were contained to within the plant. No significant injuries but five people were taken to hospital with respiratory irritation.

My building, right next door to the plastics plant, was evacuated for about three hours until they cleared out the air in that plant, then it was an all clear. Five people were taken to hospital with respiratory irritation and the rest of the 60 people were taken to the high school gym where they were evaluated and then released. Talked to a lady in another office next to mine said she been working there 20 years and never has anything like that happened there, then she says that it had to be on this day (the 20th), with a chuckle, but you could tell her nerves were shot.
