Ore City residents concerned about mysterious "boom" rattling homes

ORE CITY (KYTX)- Ore City residents are taking to Facebook, trying to figure out what caused a loud "boom" that rattled houses.

Barbara Thain lives in Ore City and she describes the boom, "like a clap of thunder incredibly close by," she said.

Another woman, Patricia Boyd says, "well it was just a loud boom and it shook the windows and the doors."

"I posted a question about it on a local Facebook page and several other people heard it too," said Thain.

Thain has lived in Ore City for a short time and says she's never heard anything like the boom. She says it was so loud it scared her animals.

Thain went to Facebook to see if anyone else heard the noise.

Patricia Boyd says her niece called her after hearing the noise asking what it was.

"I got up and went out on the porch to make sure it wasn't a fire or something like that and I went back in because I didn't see anything," said Boyd.

We went to the City of Ore City to see if they were looking into the matter, city leaders said they were not and had no further comment.

Residents say they aren't surprised the city isn't checking on the incident.

"This is a small town and the city's parameters are pretty narrow and if they didn't hear it here in town then they won't go check on it," said Boyd.
