Monday morning there was a mysterious boom that was heard across parts of north Mississippi, and Tuesday, WTVA's Wayne Hereford went in search of some answers.
For a while we thought that we might have the answer, but the "big boom" mystery continues.
We still don't know for sure what caused the loud sound across north Mississippi Monday, but just like you told us on our Facebook page, the sound was real as we were able to confirm in two separate counties .
"We had a few calls reporting that they heard a loud explosion ,sound. And some that their houses shaking," said Paul Harkins, the director of Lee County Emergency E-911.
One man who lives in Itawamba County says he heard it too.
"Yesterday afternoon, I was out in the back yard. And then all of a sudden I heard this large boom. I don't know how to really describe it. It was like a sonic boom or something," said Al Smith of the Tilden Community.
We thought we might actually be on to something earlier Tuesday when we received an e-mail from the Monroe Gas Storage Area in Amory.
The letter explains that "seismic activity will be conducted for the purpose of exploring the lands for the presence of structures favorable for the storing of natural gas . It went on to say that activities may include land surveys, laying seismic recording devices, geophones on the ground, drilling of shallow shot holes,and the use of truck-mounted energy sources."
But a spokesman for Monroe Gas later told us that their crews have not even started on the process yet, and that they are only in the land acquisition phase of the seismic acquisition program.
Meanwhile at least one resident, who lives near the facility in Amory, says his entire house has been shaken in the past as if there were an earthquake.
Another Monroe County woman said she heard a loud noise Monday too, but assumed it was just a clap of thunder.
That company spokesman for Monroe Gas says there is no part of their seismic acquisition program as loud as what some in the area have described.
He did say that there are other companies performing drilling work in the area.
