10 News has reached out to VDEM, DEQ, VDH and other local organizations who all say that while they are currently monitoring the situation, they do not foresee this causing a problem for the New River locally due to the fact that the river flows South to North.

The accident happened just south of Sandstone inside the New River National Park and Reserve.
