Listen: Emergency scanner traffic during Super Bowl power outage



Reuters reporter Matthew Keys recorded emergency radio communications during Sunday's power outage in the Superdome.

He notes a couple of interesting moments in the traffic. At about seven minutes into the recording: "The Dome may have lost power. If you do have a loss of power, just please say so on the radio."

That is followed by several minutes of back and forth about how extensive the power outage is. At 8:45: "They are on emergency power inside the Dome. Be prepared for perhaps a hasty exit."

18:26: "Just be advised the FBI's currently tracking the Occupy NOLA movement," advising anyone to who sees members to contact the security operations center. (Occupy NOLA members had staged protests earlier in the day.)
