What would cause a very sudden onset of bad diarrhea lasting longer that 30 min?

In brief: Diarrhea

a sudden onset of diarrhea is often food related, either an allergy or toxic food.
It is less likely but could be an infection passed to you. Drink plenty of fluids and if the diarrhea continues to be excessive and you can't keep up with fluids, go to the ER and get IV fluids. All the best.
