Potomac 'Explosion' Scheduled for Today

A simulated explosion is scheduled to take place near the Key Bridge, which connects Georgetown and Rosslyn, between 9:30 a.m. and noon today.

As reported by The Post's Paul Duggan on Tuesday, television producers are expected to create a bright flash of light lasting a few seconds.

"It'll be safely upriver from the Key Bridge, a clear distance from any structure or roadway or bridge," a D.C. government spokesman told Duggan.

Miscommunication between agencies led to confusion earlier this week when word circulated that there would be a large fireball lasting as long as three minutes.

I hope the show isn't only on the air as long as the "explosion"
