      kind -- can't be a gauge...  Must have some indication of fluid/flow?  Can't think what else would have a pattern like that.

      Meanwhile, a different thought (last paragraph of post) from TOD (page has reloaded... user name something like Vlostock):

      From the Video, as of 5:08 AM EST, it looks to me you can see the cutting wire...and possibly the line cut by the wire on the pipe. So, it appears the wire has been backed off and pulled out of the cut. But, the brown plume seems to be coming from below, and not out of the pipe cut.

      At least the wire is not broke. Perhaps backed out, maybe stuck?

      Wait, unless the wire we are seeing is on the backside of the cutting wheel.....yeah, that's it. We may be seeing "free" side of the wire loop between the two track wheels....that seems more probably, hence the brown cloud is completely hiding the cutting wire on the other side of the wheel pairs.
