A really loud "boom" shook at least my whole neighborhood this morning. Does anyone know what it was?

I heard it, but I have no idea what it was or where it came from. It truly was a really loud "boom". I'm very curious as to where that came from. Wow, I'm glad I wasn't close enough to feel it though!

I also heard it. I was at work, and it shook our building. I thought one of our employees had backed into the building! Just down from the scrap yard. We have had this happen before, but not very often, and we have been told exactly what "concerned" said. They told us that if a person does not remove the gas tank of a car, and it has a little gas left in it, it can cause the explosion.

The scrap yard is a possibility. It's the only reasonable explanation I've heard yet. Whatever it was, it seems people heard it for several miles! Everyone describes the same experience.

I live just about five miles from the scrap yard and it was really loud here so it must of have been there or around there.I know it scared the shit out of me and the kids but my husband slept through it.

I was over near the Rusty WAllace Pontiac Dealership in the house and I thought someone had hit the building....could it have been from the scrap yard that far over?

I was on 11E near the dealership and heard it sometime around 7:30ish. I could be wrong about the time, but I know it was before 8:00 a.m.

Blasting at the I-40 rockslide?? That's my guess because I know they were starting on blasting some of the larger boulders last week.

Could it have been Jason mosier's head finally getting so big and exploding?
It is possible that on his daily googling his name to see how famous he is that when he saw the number of hits that that was enough that his skull could no longer contain it and it popped?

If that were the case, wouldn't we feel more than one boom?
It felt more like it was coming from Cherokee Lake direction to me.
