No, you're not crazy.

Those loud booms you've been hearing? The city of Springfield wants to know more about them.

City spokeswoman Cora Scott said Wednesday that the city has received two formal service requests and nine calls about the booms in the past few weeks.

And after more booms were heard early Wednesday morning, many more people are chirping about the booms on social media.

Scott said the city wants residents who have "experienced hearing or feeling" the booms to contact them with the exact time, date and location. Residents can call 417-864-1010, email city@springfieldmo.gov or post on the city's Facebook page.

Angela Edwards, 47, has lived her whole life in Springfield and said she has never heard anything like what she heard early Wednesday morning. "This is something huge. This is something big ... I wouldn't know how to describe it. It was like a deep, loud boom," Edwards said. "It wasn't normal - whatever it was."

Residents in parts of Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and Arundel were left startled and baffled earlier this week when what was described as a loud boom was heard and felt across the area on two occasions, with no one able to pinpoint the cause.

Word of the mystery boom spread across Facebook Monday evening around 9 p.m. and again Wednesday around the same time.

People took to social media asking "Did anyone hear that? What was it?" Speculation ranged from thunder snow to a sonic boom, or a blown electrical transformer.

"I can't believe it was thunder. This was felt and heard from Cape Porpoise to Waterboro. Then two series of popping noises like semi-automatic gun fire," Kennebunk resident Wendy Lank said. "It was so loud, it really made me uneasy."

At about 4:30 p.m. Saturday, hundreds of reports of a loud "boom" were sent to the Commercial via social media.

A few minutes later, residents in the Magnolia area, some 108 miles southwest of Pine Bluff, reported a similar sound to the online news organization Magnolia Reporter.

Reports in our area came in from just south of Walmart to Redfield and along US 79 in Watson Chapel.

The National Weather Service in North Little Rock ruled out any weather-related noises, such as thunder. The Pine Bluff Police Department also reported no information on the sound, which some residents south of Pine Bluff reported shook their homes.

Residents of North Routt, Colorado trying to solve mystery of what rattled homes

BOOM
Residents in North Routt County are still trying to figure out what caused some homes and a fire station to rattle from the Clark area all the way to the shores of Steamboat Lake on Thursday morning.

Some residents wondered whether it was a sonic boom, an earthquake, or an avalanche.

But with no offical reports of an earthquake made in the area that day, the source of the boom appears to remain a mystery.

Residents started to try to solve the mystery when North Routt Rumors, a local news source in the area, asked its Facebook fans whether anyone else had experienced what felt like a "roof sliding" between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. Thursday.

Wyomissing police said that they are investigating what residents described as an "extremely loud boom" that shook their homes about 12:40 p.m. Sunday.

Initial reports from investigators southeast of Wyomissing Hills indicated that there was no fire, but the cause of the noise had not yet been determined.

A resident of Birchwood Road who called the newspaper reported that the boom rattled the roof and walls of his home and that several neighbors rushed outside to see what had happened.

Another resident who lives in the 100 block of Woodland Road said that it felt like an earthquake.

Law enforcement officials Thursday afternoon were investigating an explosion in a field north of Janesville that was linked to a noise dozens of residents reported hearing Thursday morning.

Leon Brown, who lives next to the property where the explosion occurred, said a vehicle exploded around 9:30 a.m. Photos taken at the scene show the remains of what appears to be an obliterated vehicle.

Rock County 911 Communications Center Director Kathy Sukus said officials were investigating the incident in connection with the explosion noise and shaking houses in Janesville, Milton and Edgerton reported earlier.

Reporters at the scene Thursday afternoon saw several law enforcement officials and vehicles in a field north of the intersection of North Kennedy and East Manogue roads. A lone law enforcement vehicle with a trailer was spotted several dozen yards southwest of the officials.
