Victoria Police Department investigate booms
Sept. 21, 2013 at 9:21 a.m.
The Victoria Police Department is investigating the cause of a few loud booms heard Saturday evening.
The police department received the first call about 8:45 p.m., and Sgt. Jef Strauss said about eight other people called in to report the noise.
"We just don't know at this point," Strauss said about the cause. "But, we have no indication that it's a danger to the public."
People heard the booms around Victoria East High School, near the H-E-B Plus on North Navarro Street and near the bridge on Moody Street.
Some speculate the sound may have come from the popular explosive Tannerite or even a meteorite.
A spokesman with the National Weather Service ruled out the possibility of the booms being caused by a meteorite or astronomical debris.
