Last night around 3:20 AM I woke up to massive helicopter blades whoop-whooping above our hideaway in the hills. I heard sirens in the distance, and like any modern girl, shook my blessed boyfriend Dan awake to leap out of bed and see what all the commotion was about. He groggily did my bidding as I bravely trailed behind him. You know…in case I had to save him or something. We looked across the canyon, which had the helicopters massive searchlights trained on the hill. It was crawling with police cars, fire engines and literally dozens of police/firemen on foot with flashlights. It didn’t seem to be a fire, but there was more firepower out there than I’d seen in a long time.
So.. What was up? We got online and checked for a police scanner, then the LAPD web-site, breaking news, anything…. but couldn’t find a bit of information on what was happening. In fact, I couldn’t find any kind of online scanner that had current police info. So my question is this. Isn’t
there a way to check online about what is going on at a specific site which has a lot of police/fire activity? I’m sure it’s not that the police don’t want us to know… okay, yeah, so maybe pesky, nosy inhabitants like me are a pain when you are trying to catch a criminal or something… but I was just wondering if anyone had the scoop on how to find out what’s going on when something is going on?
