In case you wondered ...

If you watched the fireworks from Astoria, you might have noticed a slight delay in the explosions.

The show, from the 17th Street dock, was delayed for good reason:?a 3-year-old who suffered a fall had to be LifeFlighted from Columbia Memorial Hospital to Portland and the helicopter needed clear skies to take off. The show began at around 10:30 p.m., about 30 minutes after it was expected to start.

Some 19 callers reported to police dispatchers that illegal fireworks were being set off from 7:47 p.m. to 2:10 a.m. all over Clatsop County. Officers were unable to locate the fireworks in a few of the instances; in others warnings were issued.
