I believe it is a plane. I saw one of those big dark green ones flying towards the Tri State Airport earlier this evening.

Continuous Thundering Noise Reported; Police Say It's Local Industry

KENOVA, W.Va.(WSAZ)-- has been flooded with calls Tuesday night from residents about a continuous thunderous noise that can be heard throughout parts of Huntington, Wayne County and across the Ohio River into Lawrence County, Ohio.

A Kenova Police Department dispatcher said the noise is being caused by petroleum byproducts being “burned off” at the Marathon Refinery along Interstate 64 in Boyd County, Ky.

The Kenova Police dispatcher said the company notified the agency earlier today that the burn-off process would last about two hours Tuesday night.

He said the company routinely goes through the procedure, but it’s rare to have this many calls about the noise associated with it.

Some callers described the noise like fighter jets and continuous thunder.
