UPDATE: With great relief. Respiratory issues among staff due to improperly stored cleaning supplies in a closet.

WFLA in Florida is reporting that a Hazmat team was called into a Planned Parenthood facility in Sarasota because an unknown substance that was found there has caused some physical reactions.

A Planned Parenthood in Sarasota was evacuated Monday morning and hazmat crews responded after receiving a report of an unknown substance inside the building.

Unidentified chemicals were later found in a cleaning closet and removed.

Persons inside the building reported experiencing a shortness of breath. 911 dispatchers received a call about the unknown substance at about 1030 a.m. on Monday.

We'll update when we find out more information.
