You can see the snow rippling near the hangar, slowly growing and surrounding the cars as officials stand around trying to decide a next move to handle the foam.
You can watch a full livestream of the coverage below form ABC News affiliates:
Any wind blows the foam with ease down nearby streets. It's like when you take a handful of bubbles and blow them from your hands.
The video even shows the foam covering a passing biker completely.
There's no word yet as to what caused the malfunction.
The story is still developing.
