Two or three loud booms shook houses all over Seattle and beyond today. They hit about 1:50pm and had people walking out in the streets to see what happened.
The FAA says it was sonic booms from military jets scrambling after Presidential airspace was breached, reports KING 5. President Obama is visiting Seattle today.
The booms were heard across Seattle, but especially in West Seattle — many residents there were shaken enough to call 911. West Seattle Blog reports that 911 lines were jammed with all the callers.
