Sirens in Washington DC

Thu Oct 12, 2017 1:24 am

I am taking a trip to washington DC with my school in June 2018 and was wondering if somebody could tip me any locations of sirens there. Also a side note does anyone know if the thunderbolt is still on the capitol building

Here's the "Various Sirens in Virginia" map, made by PeachtreeSirens; it may be of assistance to you. https://goo.gl/h8qd3s

There was never a Thunderbolt on the capitol building itself; it was on a nearby senate office building. Only a few sirens remain from the old system, which was once one of the largest systems in the U.S. Most are in rural areas outside of D.C. itself.

Here is another one of Peachtree's maps, "Various Sirens in Maryland." Likely has more in and around the metro area considering D.C. is on the Maryland side of the Potomac.
