@PoPville got a lot of tweets last night:

“Anyone else hear those SEVEN enormously loud BOOMS in Northeast DC just now?”

MPD settles it:

“Someone had apparently ignited fireworks. We responded and recovered several fireworks from the area of H Street.”

There have been a number of Gunshots or Fireworks? tweets from around the H Street, NE area the last few weeks – so if you hear enormous booms there’s a good chance the stash has not been depleted. Of course you never know…so call 911 to report it. Also send a tweet to @PoPville if you’re concerned and folks can usually clear it up right quick. Props to @wcpsarah who called it fireworks early on.
