Sightings of unauthorized drones flying over Naval Base Kitsap have prompted a request from the Navy to local residents to say something if they see something flying over the base. “Unauthorized drone flights pose a potential threat to national security,” said Rear Adm. Jeff Ruth, commander of Navy Region Northwest, in a Friday news release.

The Navy asks any resident who sees a drone flying over the base to report it to the regional dispatch center at 360-396-4444. Be ready to provide the following details: Location, including the direction the drone is flying, and where it came from, including landmarks or street intersections. Note the date and time of the sighting, and the approximate size and color of the drone; number of propellers and color of lights. If possible, take a photo or video. FULL REPORT
