Thanks to all who messaged us about this slightly unsettling scene last night:
Anyone hear a loud, high-piercing, one-note siren in Dupont around 18th and S St, NW that lasted around 5 minutes just now? Was it a building alarm?

Apparently it was just a siren that was malfunctioning from a firetruck. Good thing we bought all that toilet paper.
