If you heard the ‘booms’…

… multiple texters/tweeters say it was fireworks, somewhere in the Fauntleroy/Alaska vicinity. Too far for us to hear from here but “boom”-type fireworks per one description.

MID-MORNING P.S. Thanks to the commenters sharing info about what they saw and when!

    I heard the booms as well. When I went out to investigate the sounds I saw a huge coyote at 46th ave sw and Hudson St.

    Heard them all the way down near delridge playfield.  Tuned into the komo police scanner and sounds like it likely was fireworks.

    I heard a boom and looked out the window of my apartment building. While I looked I heard another boom and saw a firework shoot up into the sky and explode. There were three more fireworks afterward. They looked like they were being fired from behind Beer Junction and I could hear shouting from that direction. There was also smoke illuminated by a street lamp.

    My apartment overlooks where they were launching the fireworks. Happened around 1 am. The mortars were being launched from Oregon & 44th, and detonating over the big parking lot at Oregon & 42nd. Simultaneously, there was a crazy or drunk person screaming at the top of their lungs by the QFC!!! Gotta love the safe and peaceful WS :)

    so, does this or these cretins have neighbors? And do they complain and call police when this happens? I know I would. The perpetrators must live in a magical land….

      I was wondering the same thing.. I also wonder how many police actually patrol WS. Seems slim to none.

    Well, JanS, people behave differently in other people’s neighborhoods.  In this case he was in a parking lot where people think their behavior has no consequence.  It ceases to amaze me what people do in parking lots knowing full well that people live nearby.

    Heard and saw, my apartment faces the parking lot, called police, seems they never showed up before they moved further off. =\ very frightening , first boom thought was gunshot(think it was like a more bomb type “firework”. Large white firework came after.  Wish there were patrols here, things have been bad lately.

Sorry, comment time is over.
