(Added: SFD at Don Armeni, photographed by Kevin Ainsworth)

3:07 PM: Seattle Fire has sent a sizable water-rescue response to Alki, by land and sea, with some units at Don Armeni too. We haven’t yet heard any details on the call but we’re headed that way.

3:17 PM: One radio exchange has since mentioned kayaker(s) possibly in trouble off Alki Point.

3:19 PM: And another has mentioned two kayakers and one paddleboarder who have been assisted by the Coast Guard.

3:33 PM: We’ve confirmed with firefighters as they got ready to leave Alki that everyone is OK.

    Yep. Working at pegasus right now and there’s about three firetrucks on the road and one ambulance. Saw two coast guard boats as well. Heard that they were gonna move to a different angle down the beach more.

    Well, why wouldn’t they want to get out on the Sound in kayaks and paddleboards in the kind of wind we had today?   We had to close our yard umbrella to keep it from damage. Snark.

Sorry, comment time is over.
