Mystery *Boom* Heard / Felt In #Sackville #FallRiver #BeaverBank #Bedford Last Night.


Last night, (March 6) around 11 P.M., I started receiving and reading tweets about a huge BOOM in the area. There has not been any official explanation and there may not be, but it’s fun to speculate! Take a peek at some of the convo:

@sackvilleinside: @sack_vegas wtf was that huge boom in sackville? It was loud enough could have been in Bedford.

@sackvilleinside: @sack_vegas yeah like 5 mins ago. Really loud by first lake drive. Def not a firework.

@davehessian: @sackvilleinside @sack_vegas my friend in Fall River just asked the same thing?!

@annehorsman65: What was that loud boom in sackville , Windsor junction about 20 minutes ago

@oceanboundmer: @sack_vegas I was in bedford heard something too, thought neighbor kicked the door for a sec. #boom

@PointZeroRadio: @sack_vegas @sackvilleinside Any word on what that loud boom was? We’ve got a ton of people calling in asking!

@sackvilleinside: @PointZeroRadio @sack_vegas no idea but it seemed to be heard in beaverbank sackville and fallriver.

@Laker_PatHealey: @sackvilleinside @PointZeroRadio @sack_vegas it’s on FB too people in FR Village heard it. I do not know.

So…what was it? I have had people suggest a meteor or plane breaking the sound barrier and I have also had a “Frost Quake” mentioned. Apparently frost quakes happen from time to time out west and in Ontario. It’s during a cold snap and the ground cracks creating a huge BANG! Something definitely went on, does anyone out there have any info?

About Jeff Nielsen

For people who love Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia! A lot of us lovingly call it “Sack-Vegas” which I personally find hilarious. I hope to have this column be a place for us to discuss our hometown, poke fun at ourselves (nothing too derogatory about our town though), post some old or current pics….whatever we want to do with it.
