Just last week, we announced the launch of reporter Chelsea Gorrow’s new Twitter page celebrating the best of the worst 911 calls in Clatsop County received by Astoria Dispatch, Seaside and Cannon Beach. Now, 30 tweets in, the page has grown from 14 followers (mainly co-workers and friends) to 85.

To see the tweets, go to https://twitter.com/9_1_WHAT.

Feel free to reply, retweet or favorite any of these calls and look for the best, published here every Friday.

{5/1 @10:37 p.m.} #Seaside Police received call from woman who heard a noise she couldn’t define. Officers checked, it was the wind.


{5/1 @ 4:40 a.m.} An #Astoria resident on Franklin Ave. reports they will be lighting candles inside the house and taking photos. #9-1-WHAT?


{4/26 @ 11:26 p.m.} #Seaside Police received call from woman asking if we were having an earthquake. She was advised we were not.
