Not to Worry: They're Just Howitzers You're Hearing
Some Georgetown residents have heard loud booms as early as 6:30 a.m. recently. The sounds are from World War 2 era howitzers used for ceremonies at Fort Myer and Arlington Cemetery. Seems the army turned the guns around the other way and pointed them towards D.C. after Arlington residents had been complaining. If you wish to comment, contact D.C. Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton.
