Abandoned Building Photography - Sufficient Exposure?

Hello. Firstly, I want to know that my prayers and thoughts are with you all.

I have a question regarding asbestos exposure. A group of friends and I decided to take some photographs of a building.

Unfortunately, we didn't know it may have asbestos. We were there for about 30 minutes and only stayed outside. I didn't see any insulation, but the site was near a highway and it was windy.

I know that the roof has collapsed sometime during the 1980-90s, but portions of it look like it has been cleaned up. Is it possible most of the fibers have been displaced by the wind?

What are the chances of us getting mesothelioma from this brief exposure? I have no family history of any cancer on both sides.

I feel as if my anxiety is growing worse regarding this incident.
