A reader asks on twitter:

“Any details on what’s going on by the tidal basin with the coast guard and rescue squads?”

Another reader reports via email:

“Thinking there’s an overturned boat on the Potomac, due to all the wind. There are two coast guard helicopters and a large EMS/MPD presence by the entrance of the tidal basin on the Ohio Dr bridge. Just saw one tweet that said they think it’s an overturned rowing team.”

Update from MPD:

“Small overturned boat. No reported injuries.”
