Aside from widespread power outages and flooding that is reaching doorsteps, residents stranded in Seaside Heights, N.J., are worried about another danger: ruptured gas lines.

Locals told “Nightline” anchor Terry Moran that they had been told there is a concern that the slightest spark could set the town ablaze.

Seaside heights is 10 miles north of the Oyster Creek nuclear power plant.

    If ABC is concerned, include me out.

      Upon further consideration, I perceive this otherwise alarming, ABC promoted, 'spark could set town ablaze', and 'reporter smells oil' suggestion, coinciding with possible nuclear cooling failures and contaminating gas emissions from Salem and Oyster Creek NJ NPPs, to be unmitigated, diversionary, and corporatized disinformation of the 1st order.

      I need to get some shut-eye, but one last post directed to moonshellblue: Where are you relative to the storm and how are you faring? (Since it's 4 a.m. in Pennsylvania I hope you are blissfully sleeping as I write this!)
