panic in dc

An unusual fireworks show at an unusual time (October) at an unusual place (Kennedy Center) sent many people in DC and Northern Virginia into a tizzy.

I guess I can understand mistaking it for a train wreck, or machine gun fire -- but a nuke? It's kind of a funny story, but also a commentary -- didn't people used to mistake the noise made by fireworks for thunder, not nuclear weapons?
