Couldn’t they have reacted a bit more quickly?

Barry County residents evacuated

Barry County, Mich., Aug. 28 – Some Barry County residents are being kept from their homes after a tanker truck spilled 4,000 gallons of gasoline, at the rate of a gallon per minute.

4,000 gallons at a gallon a minute would take 66 hours, 40 minutes. I’m just saying.
