no power outages that I can see. no green glowing lights. I have seen the green lights from a transformer going out (down the street from my house) all the way from Paducah before.

oh seriously thats not even funny----there are enough around here thats for sure like anywhere else, but it isnt anything to jab about. I was just curious if anyone heard it and might have a clue and to those that answered about the topic thank you it was very much appreciated. at least I can rest better knowing it wasnt a house blowing up from natural gas, meth, or just some body else crazy enough to blow themselves sky high, or the plant (not that the noise came from that direction.

did anyone ever hear anything else about what caused it? Tons of people heard it. No one said their power was out. could it have been a sonic boom from a plane going over?
