  1. I also felt these rumbles out on Demory Rd. I know when it was happening I was thinking wow the rock quarry is really blasting big! So if it wasn’t the rock quarry blasting just what was it.

    1. We feel them and sometimes hear loud explosions out off Grantsboro quite often. Its never mentioned in the news, though. Once this spring we heard what sounded like timed explosions, one after another, probably 12 – 15 low frequency booms in the distance, one every 5 seconds or so right around nightfall.

      1. Thank you for your response, Joe.

        WLAF can’t be everywhere covering every story, but it sure does help when someone lets us know about something like the explosions you’re referencing. That way we can follow up.
