• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

New Brunswick FD was also operating on their side of the river. Boy did that cause for some excitement and headaches yesterday...

Here is a video of the leak under the river and the resulting "geyser". Whats crazy is that PSE&G has known about this gas line leaking since at least November, and at the time stated that it posed no threat, well I guess they have egg on their face now. I would assume that this gas line may have finally burst due to the constant freezing and thawing of the river that has occurred this winter, as it is completely visible (it sits on the bottom of the river but isn't really covered at all) during low tides during the summer.
