I woke up at 5 AM to the sirens, also. Perhaps it is part of the combat airlift exercises at McChord (that I hadn’t heard of until this news in The Suburban Times). A little warning for the residents of Lakewood along I-5 would have been appreciated!
Having lived thru WW II and air raid sirens, in occupied Japan and Germany, and in the Midwest with tornado warnings, I could only think they might be lahar sirens! I rushed to the TV to see what news programs had to say…and there were only the very early morning talk shows!
THANKS for letting us know after the fact, McChord!
