STONINGTON, Conn. (AP) - Authorities are trying to determine the source of several loud booms heard in Stonington.
Stonington Police Capt. Jerry Desmond told The Day of New London that the department received multiple phone calls Friday morning from people living in the Old Mystic section of town. The callers said they heard three loud booms or explosions that also shook their houses.
Desmond said police and fire officials are searching the area, including construction sites and power lines, but have not yet determined a cause for the noises.
Desmond said the police department did not receive any reports of damage or power outages.
Nancy Peta of Old Mystic told The Day about how the booms, approximately 15 minutes apart, felt like an earthquake and sounded like an exploding propane tank or plane crash.
