False Alarm at Gallery Place/Chinatown Metro this Morning “Half the People Evacuated, Half Stayed”

Around 8:45am I started getting reports @PoPville on twitter that Gallery Place was being evacuated. A few minutes later @MetroTransitPD tweeted:

“Reports of Gallery Place being evacuated are not accurate.”

@Metrorailinfo then tweeted:

“Gallery Place station is experiencing a false alarm. The station has not been evacuated. All trains are servicing. 8:58a #wmata”

@grafxnerd was there and tweeted us:

“all turnstiles were open and dn escalators were off. 1/2 ppl left, other 1/2 stayed.”

The false alarm sounded something like:

“something like, station manager report to your station now. /pause/ there has been an emergency, please evacuate imdtly”
