Wind Direction and estimated wind speed on site
and any persons affected sick or down

Wind: spreds Fumes and Vapor
Water Spreds Product Enviromental Hazard
Heat Causes Expantion and Accelerates Fumes & Vapor Concentrations

Current Online HAZ-MAT Guidehttp://hazmat.dot.gov/pubs/erg/psnsort.htm

Being that It takes lots and lots of water to nutrilize amonia rain compounds the proablem when there is an industrial spill.
depending on the amount or size of a spill wind can causes problems because Fumes & Vapor stay concentrated for quite some distance from the source hence if there is a major leak then evacuations in major spills will be warrented down wind of the scene.
Heat increases the output of amonia vapors and if a tanks is involved possible heat can accelerate tank falure by rupture or bleve
