QC finds language used by this investigator is just a bit unsettling:
JFK Pipeline Is ‘Ticking Time Bomb'
"The pipeline's operator, Buckeye Partners, has said that in the event of an attack, sections of the 40 miles of pipeline that run between Linden, N.J., and Queens could be isolated easily by shutoff valves.
The president of Accufacts Inc., a company that investigates oil and gas pipelines, Richard Kuprewicz, said an explosion in the pipeline would probably extend for hundreds or thousands of feet, not miles.
"There have been neighborhoods that have disappeared — a tremendous fireball and tremendous amount of destruction," he said. "It's going to be fairly spectacular, but it's going to be limited."
"Mr. Kuprewicz said he believed that in New York the pipeline was monitored more carefully."
The Daily News reports that:
New York and nation would lose billions if airport crippled
