Eerie video shows Capitol warning message tested in desolate DC streets

Eerie video footage shows emergency warnings being tested out before Inauguration Day in almost empty streets around the US Capitol.

A short clip recorded Saturday afternoon shows the usually bustling streets near the Capitol building in Washington, DC, almost completely empty after the district put up a ring of steel amid ongoing threats of violence.

Adding to the unsettling scenes, a loudspeaker repeatedly states, “This is a test of the US Capitol Police audible emergency notification system.”

“Super dystopian,” said Remora House DC, a “collective” that helps the district’s homeless, as it shared the clip. “Super scary times we living in.”
