Not sure what is going on but I heard they are flying over the river with a spot light. Sounds like they may be searching for somebody. There is also a boat with a spotlight in the water. Doesn't sound good. I will probably hear more about in on the local news in the morning. The helicopter was flying really low when it went over my place. They must be bringing more in.

I just heard that somebody sent up a flare so they are searching the entire river in the area that it went up at but now they think it may have been somebody just messing around.

@Happy2BeMe Oh I see, luckily it was no one in danger but that was a false alarm for the police

We used to live down the road from a popular (ice) fishing spot, and we'd hear the helicopters when the fishermen knew better then to be out on the ice. In this case, I hope that they were successful in finding who they were looking for-fingers crossed.

@Happy2BeMe Isn't that a shame, they have no idea how expensive that is and how it ties up the emergency personnel that cannot respond to anything else while they are engaged in that search.

@Juliaacv I know it would have been a huge expense and time just to make sure there was nobody in need of help

Used to happen a lot when I lived in Gloucester...mainly due to the police helicopter being based nearby. Now I'm in worcester I haven't heard/seen the police chopper at all in nearly a year. I think I moved to a less criminal city

Lots of helicopters fly around here and sirens go off often. Hope all will be alright. Have a fantastic rest of the week.

Yes I do hope so. The water levels are still really high so there should be no boats in the river yet but people are anxious to get out on the water this time of year.
