“There is major police, fire, and ambulance presence in Bloomingdale but no obvious fire or flooding. The unit block of U St is closed as is 1st Street just south of Rhode Island. Lots of police milling about, lots of official SUVs, and according to the Twitter hashtag #BloomingdaleDC they’re not allowed to talk about what’s going on. Any info? It would at least be nice to know why roads are being closed.”
“Firefighters operating on 2 SpOps calls: Mercury spill-2452 Ontario road Nw & a bomb threat 72 U street Nw”
More info as it becomes available.
