Default San Diego fireworks set off early

Fireworks in San Diego, CA were set off this evening about 5 minutes early. They were set off all at once in what was considered to be a botched display. Spectators were then told to go home.

BNO News has made phone calls to city officials. They have not yet been returned.

Just heard back from city officials, they gave us a statement that basically said the show was cancelled. They said they would tell us further in the next hour

A couple tweets I just sent out from my @AlBoeNEWS account:

Port District Authorities tell San Diego media that a "technical difficulty" led to all fireworks going off at once.

Residents throughout San Diego reported a big boom and shaking as fireworks went off all at once -witnesses and twitter

nobody was hurt, probably just disappointed a lot of people and cost the city a lot of money! Heck, at least they got a hell of a finale!!!!
