The Bangs are Back

Ty asks Sunday: “anyone know the source of the exploding noises in NE DC? Been going on all day. Fireworks?”

This is a relatively new/not so new phenomena that has been the last few springs through August. We’ve never been able to pin down what exactly the new explosive/firework is called but rest assured it will continue to be heard throughout the District for a few more months to come.

Ed. Note: Occasionally there will be/could be a transformer blown which also causes a loud explosion but this is different.
