Residents on N. East Street, College Street and South East Street all heard/felt it
Dispatch received multiple calls last night around 8:15 PM reporting a huge explosion somewhere in east Amherst. The reporting party on Jenks Street said it "shook the house," and upon first arriving on scene an Amherst police officer noted smoke off in the distance woods.
But by the time he hitched a ride out to the suspected area, the smoke was gone. I went outside immediately after the first 911 call aired to scan the skies for a military jet, but did not see or hear one.
Mystery solved. Or NOT
