Water Pouring Into Lincoln Tunnel Freaks Drivers Out


Commuters in New York City were freaked out when they noticed that water was gushing out of the wall of the Lincoln Tunnel as they were driving through it. Some sat in their cars fearing the worst.

A video was taken as the water was flowing into the tunnel that connects New Jersey and New York City. The images prompted people to tweet about their fears of being stuck in the tunnel if it flooded.

The good news is that the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which operates the tunnel, says that a water main ruptured in a facility room in the tunnel’s center tube. After the break was repaired, the water was pumped out. Nobody got flooded inside the tunnel.
