Early afternoon on Monday, a Planned Parenthood clinic in Sarasota, Florida faced mass evacuation after an “unknown substance” was exposed to people inside the facilities. Police at this time have not identified what the substance is, but seven people exposed were immediately evacuated to the hospital. Everyone else inside has been placed under quarantine for decontamination.
Nearby businesses and a school were placed on lockdown as police are investigating the cause of this substance. The unknown substances were found within cleaning supply closets, but authorities are unsure who placed them there. They said the victims reported trouble breathing but no life-threatening injuries or fatalities.
Details are still developing.
