The booms are back. Getting reports from 7th and O. It is very likely those loud M80 type firecrackers that have been reported a lot recently. I'm not going to report them all but if you hear one loud boom or many rhythmic ones know you are not alone in hearing them.

Last night, throughout the night, we received tons of reports of those loud booms in numerous neighborhoods across the District.

And of course James reminds us: “It’s Fourth of July pre-season.”
