BURKE COUNTY, Ga. (WJBF) – NewsChannel 6 has confirmed that the Burke County Sheriff’s Office is investigating calls of ‘loud boom’ and shaking around the county.
Officials say they’ve received calls from various residents from Keysville to Plant Vogtle.
Those two locations in Burke County are 35 miles apart from one another.
Investigators are perplexed as to what could have caused the incident.
“We have checked with Ft. Gordon and Plant Vogtle and neither were doing any type of munitions training that would have caused such percussion,” said Burke County Sheriff’s Office on their Facebook page, “Also the NOAA reports no earthquakes or tremors in the area.”
Fortunately, there was no damage reported.
“Several folks have reported seeing fighter jets so that may be an explanation. The main thing is we are all safe and it’s another beautiful day in Burke County!” said the Sheriff’s Office.
