My sister couldn't sleep last night.
MyEverettNews.com started received messages early this morning about super loud horn or siren that was keeping folks awake on the hottest night of the year. The sound was thought to be coming somewhere from the waterfront.
We checked with the Port of Everett this morning and they issued the following apology…
We apologize for the prolonged horn noise at the Port last night. One of our customers has been doing some finishing work on a new ocean-going tug boat, and the horn malfunctioned. Our customer has assured us they have remedied the issue.
Please accept our sincere apologies on the noise, the time it took to figure out how to turn off the horn and the fact that it happened on the hottest day of the year so far.
CEO Port of Everett
So there is your answer. Glad we could help. Were gonna go take a nap now.
