Anyone else hear “2 loud explosions” around 11pm in Petworth last night?

damage from Columbia Heights explosion a week and a half ago

“Dear PoPville,

There were 2 loud explosions about 10 mins apart in Petworth last night around 11pm. Louder than fireworks and shook our house, which is in between grant and Sherman circle. Any news on this?”

Given the power of what we saw in Columbia Heights, I’m guessing it probably is more “fireworks”. Have folks noticed more powerful explosions this year over previous years?
