2:31 PM: Thanks to everybody who’s been asking about the U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and vessel off west-facing West Seattle. We just talked with the duty officer at USCG District 13 public affairs and he says they don’t have anything search/rescue going on in this area, so as far as he knows, it’s training, which is common on Sundays “to get their hours in” when nothing else is going on.
3:21 PM: Over now. (We went down to see if we could catch a photo, but no luck.)
6:16 PM: Thanks to Jamie Kinney for the video.
