Explosions will ripple through the Bay Area today -- but those averse to objects blowing up are urged to worry not. It's all part of the drill.
Today is the Golden Guardian full-scale, port security exercise across the state -- and "The Ports of Oakland, Redwood City, and Benicia will all suffer various degrees of explosions," according to organizers.
You may hear some booms and see smoke hanging over the bay as attacks on cargo ships and bombings are simulated.
Also today, the Navy will demonstrate its militarily trained dolphins
and seals down by AT&T Park. This, blessedly, will not result in
explosions or smoke. So we're told.
