It was an unusual, very solid-looking lenticular cloud coming off the ocean and over San Pedro during a wet February. A bunch of trigger happy Gomers
wetting their pants opened up on it, because 3 days before a Japanese sub had been spotted off the coast of Santa Barbara, and everybody was extra
edgy. Of course it wasn't damaged. How can you damage a cloud? Pretty soon, all hell breaks loose with everybody blasting away at the even larger
smoke cloud created by searchlight lighting up the exploding rounds. Eventually it drifts off over Diamond Bar and dissipates, so three hours later,
when the Fourth Interceptor Command finally gets some planes up to look at it, it's "vanished."
Three people were killed in events related to the event. Two died in car crashes related to the blackout. One from a heart attack. Oh, and a few
Good excuse to round up more Japanese and shove them in internment camps.
