Big Dan's Big News Dec 17, 2010

Idiots don't tell people in the Valley not to worry about gas smell:

Yesterday I said: "Notice: there is a "propane smell" or "gas smell" in the Northeast Pa. Wyoming Valley area. According to Kingston Fire Dept (I called them), they are purging gas lines in Hunlock Creek area. They got about 40 calls complaining of this, and they think the winds are taking the smell around the valley, they know of the smell in at least Forty Fort, Swoyersville, Exeter, and I smell it in the Pittston area near the high school. So they think the winds are taking it around the valley. They said it has nothing to do with the nuclear power plant. Earlier, the fire department showed up where my wife works in Kingston at an apartment complex, and they told her, "the power plant is purging something". When people throw around the term "the power plant", everyone and their brother knows one thing comes to mind: the nuclear power plant. People should be careful when they say "the power plant", when they DON'T mean the nuclear power plant."

And I told you in comments that my wife said people at the apartment complex she works at in Kingston were running around panicked looking for a gas leak and called the Kingston Fire Department.

Today in the paper:

Luzerne County Emergency Management Agency received hundreds of calls over the last two days about a natural gas odor, said coordinator Steve Bekanich.

The odor was still prevalent throughout the area Thursday as UGI Penn Natural Gas continued to purge a natural gas line that runs from Shickshinny to Hunlock Creek.


Bekanich was upset that the Luzerne County Emergency Management Agency was not notified about UGI's procedure in advance. Since police and fire departments responded to hundreds of calls, that led to a huge amount of resources being expended, he said.

He contacted officials from UGI and the Public Utility Commission to set up a meeting "to have them ensure us that we will be made aware of what's going on so that this never occurs again."

"They have to do maintenance procedures and we understand that these procedures have to occur where they need to vent gas, but the timeliness of the notification was not acceptable as far as we're concerned," Bekanich said.
