Unidentified Object on Coast
LOS ANGELES, Calif.—Air batteries unleashed salvos skyward over the Los Angeles metropolitan area early this morning. The sirens began sounding at 2:25 a.m. Pacific War Time (PWT). The action, which lasted nearly two hours, was in response to reports of two waves of unidentified aircraft overhead from San Diego to Santa Monica. Yet even hours after the incident, the military has not revealed details of the targets. It did, however, rebuke civilian reports of as many as two hundred planes in the sky. Several reports of damage from falling anti-aircraft shells, but there are no reports of ordnance from aircraft causing damage. During the action, two Japanese men and one Japanese woman were seized in Venice for allegedly signaling with flashlights.
