The Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles Is Evacuated

By  | 


Officials said about 10 a.m. this morning the entire agency on Apalachee Parkway was evacuated after employees were complaining of a strong smell of bleach.

The HAZMAT team, along with Tallahassee's Fire and Police Department, responded.

They said the smell was caused by a cleaning solvent that clogged a drain on the fourth floor bathroom making it hard for workers to breathe.

Officials said all employees were sent home for about two hours, but everything is back up and running at DMV.
