Something awry on Sintra Drive

8/27/2008 Update:

Suspicious brown package found Sinatra Drive between 5th & 6th.

Sheesh, people can’t even ship stuff UPS anymore….

Since I can’t be everywhere at once, I’ll get this story started about what I’ve been hearing on the Live Hoboken Police and Fire Scanner.

Something going on at Stevens/Sinatra Drive

At the current time, Sinatra Drive is closed between 4th and 11th Streets. It sounds as if there’s some kind of problem near the Steven Campus (at that parking garage indicated in the picture above).

Emergency crews are near “grade level” of the complex, and they’ve evacuated nearby buildings.

I can’t determine at this time whether it’s a collapse of some kind, a power-related issue (I heard PSE&G mentioned on the radio), or anything else.

I will be in and out of the office this afternoon, so anyone listening in, or in the vicinity please feel free to add comments to keep this situation up to date.

My compliments on H411’s vocabulary. I can’t remember the last time I saw “awry” outside of a crossword puzzle.

Quimby can’t kick stevens out, not without getting city hall kicked out 🙂

It was reported as a suspicious package and the threat is apparently over.
