Residents of Elbow reported a mysterious noise that sounded like a “boom” or “explosion” on Jan 12 around 8:30 am.
Residents were unable to pinpoint the source of the noise, some claiming to hear it coming from the North End of Elbow Cay, some hearing it emanating from the south, while others Lubber’s Cay and the mainland of Abaco.
No smoke was visible to indicate an explosion. Some on the ground speculate that the source of the noise was a “Sonic Boom” which is caused when a military jet breaks the sound barrier.
After the single loud noise no further incidents were reported.
