    Default Breaking News: Major Gas Leak in Manhattan

    Glenn Beck show just had to switch from their Radio City HQ to their Disaster Recovery mode out of LA (with a pre-recorded show) since Radio City is being evacuated...

    According to him the gas smell is ranging over much of lower manhattan from the Battery to Radio City....

    From NYC Channel 7:

    Mysterious gas odor in NYC and Jersey CityF station at W. 23rd St and 6th Ave evacuated, PATH train service suspended btn. 33rd Street and Journal Square and 33rd Street and Hoboken
    Eyewitness News
    (New York-WABC, January 8, 2007) - The odor of natural gas was reported across Midtown Manhattan, prompting hundreds of calls to emergency workers.

    Eyewitness News is told the smell was first reported in the vicinity of Fifth Avenue and 34th Street.
    Hundreds of calls poured into city emergency officials. Apparently the calls are coming from Chelsea, Battery Park west, Madison Square Park, and there are also reports of the gas smell outside of our studio on 66th and Columbus.

    The smell was also reported in Downtown Jersey City.

    Con Edison officials said were investing the source of the leak.

    No injuries were immediately reported as a result of the leak. The office of emergency management was investigating.


    So either there's a huge utility emergency underway or someone is playing with mercaptan...

    How about SMOG! I bet all the callers were not native Jersey people, they are desensitized to that odor. Glad I was not at work, nothing like chasing 10-33's all day!
