I left Durham, NC this morning and just pulled into Conway, AR. While passing through TN I managed to miss this:

WBIR.com | Knoxville, TN | UPDATED: EMA orders evacuation after tanker spill on I-40

By less than 5 min. I was no more than 1 mile back from it when it happened. Traffic was immediately shutdown in both directions and it looks like it remains so. We waited around for 30 min or so then the truckers started saying it was leaking and had a hazmat symbol on it. Everyone started driving back on the median to the closest cross-over to get on the eastbound lanes and to get back to US70 to bypass it. US70 runs parallel and close to I40 in that area, but from the looks of that article it may now also be closed. Avoid this area.
