Library of Congress Evacuated

That's about all of the story that's out there. In it's entirety, the item reads: "The main building of the Library of Congress was evacuated Wednesday morning while a hazardous materials team investigated what people in the building said was a suspicious odor.

Capitol Police officer Dan Kurtz said two people in the Jefferson Building, located across the street from the Capitol, complained of feeling faint. One was treated at the scene and another was taken to a local hospital."

I hope all is well...

An event happened at the international airport here in which there was a major evacuation following someone fainting, with scores of others saying they could smell something which authorities decided was toxic gas. Not saying it's the same situation there, but the consensus here was that mass panic set in and people thought they were being poisoned.
