Haz Mat SH spill in St. Pete, wonder what the bill is going to be??

How much is this going to cost this pool contractor?? Interesting to see Haz Mat in dealing with a spill that could have been one of us.

Here is the video

And the article-

Since tomorrow is Mothers day I decided to fill my tanks today just water and SH for Monday. Inside my trailer the floor is coated with that Herculies bed liner stuff and I spilled about a cup of Sh but quickly put a white rag over it to soak it up. When I got back with the water hose I put it in the tank and started filling it. I came back in a minute or two and heard what appeared to be a kinked water hose. As i got closer to the tank the noise went away so I started to pull the hose so the kink would come out. There was no kink, instead the hissing noise was the rag on the spill, smoke was even coming out. This thing was hot like fire to the touch I quickly got water on it. I wont mix again without water present and I suggest we all attend to a spill right away in the future. HAs this happened to anyone else?

This happened to me about a week ago. I spilled some SH in the back of the van on the carpet and placed a towel over it to soak it up. As I was sitting there the towel was smoking like yours so I acted quickly and tossed the rag outside. I had my chemical gloves on so I don't know if it was hot or not. I pumped clean water on it and the issue went away. It got my attention real quick. These terry rags were just washed in the machine I have in my shop so it was not as it had oil or something else on it. Like you I'm looking for answers.
