Has The Attack Started
You laugh. You think I am joking, that I cannot be serious in some of the BLOGs I write. It's not all bull contrary to what some may want you to think!
As you know, I have inside moles in many locations who feed me information. I try to warn my readers in advance so that you will be well-prepared. My spy at the Cow Palace in San Francisco gave me the heads-up information about bovine flatulence, cow farts to you.
And the first attack may have started. Did you read the story from CNN about New York. Why do you think I really went there during Christmas...the shopping was a mere cover story. Now YOU are warned!
Mayor Bloomberg: Natural Gas Odor Not Dangerous
January 08, 2007
The mayor said this morning that it is not clear what caused the natural gas smell throughout the city, however he said it is not believed to be dangerous and that city sensors are not reporting elevated levels of natural gas.
Hundreds of reports of the odor began flooding the 911 system around 9 a.m. in parts of Manhattan and New Jersey.
Bloomberg said there was a small natural gas leak reported at 6th Street and Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village earlier this morning, but that it would not have caused such a pervasive smell.
Con Edison and various city agencies are still working to determine the cause of the odor.
The mayor said that air quality sensors throughout the city do not measure any high concentrations of natural gas that would be cause for concern, and that Con Edison has said that there has not been a drop in pressure along the natural gas system, which would indicate a leak.
He reminded New Yorkers that natural gas is colorless and odorless and that a chemical called mercaptan is added to natural gas to give it a strong odor so that it can be easily detected. The smell could have been caused by a mercaptan leak.
Early reports indicated that the odor was spread throughout Manhattan, from Battery Park City to Upper Manhattan, and in various parts of New Jersey, but the odor seems to have dissipated.
Some buildings throughout the city were reportedly evacuated, but are said to be reoccupied.
PATH train service was restored around 10:30 a.m., after it was suspended earlier between Hoboken and 33rd Street and between Journal Square and 33rd Street.
Subway service was not affected. No injuries have been reported.
