Major Electrical Hazard With This Meter Box In Omaha

By
Home Inspector with Foundation-2-Rooftop, Inc.

I've ran across plenty of these sitations over the years, but never one this bad.  The ground has settled and the underground service lines are being pulled down with it.  The meter box is tilted and coming off the wall.  At some point, the wires will begin to pull loose and sparks will fly!!!  This underground service lines have been pulled so far that the bottom of the meter box is being yanked out.

We've got plenty more extreme situations in our photo galleries on our website.  Check them out at www.Omaha-Home-Inspection.com

Great catch hopefully the home owner or buyer will be able to have it replaced before it does catch fire.
