FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Several loud booms have apparently shaken homes on the city’s south side and in southern Allen County.

Dozens of NewsChannel 15 viewers said on Facebook and Twitter they felt and heard the booms around 10 p.m.

Emergency dispatchers said city and county police officers investigated, but were unable to locate where the booms came from or what they were.

One person reported the boom as far north as Pettit Avenue in Fort Wayne and another said they felt it near Monroeville. One caller to NewsChannel 15 said he felt a boom in northern Wells County.

Dispatchers also said there were no reported fires or incidents that emergency responders were aware of.
