    My disaster sister is a part of the DC emergency personnel.

    She said the best way to keep on top of it is at this radio station. She said they are right there and they report on everything right away.

    Radio says police planning a news conference in 10 minutes.

    could have been a car backfire.

    ETA: It' a good station JDB
    yes, Floh I am, listening to the same. Really on the spot reporting. I have to remember this for future DC activity.
    Even though my sister gets paged with everything that's going on, she said she can stay up to date through this station because they are right there.
