COLERAIN TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - Residents in the Colerain Township area are reporting loud bangs, trembling houses and flashing lights, and officials haven't pinpointed what might be causing it.
From one side of town to the other, the bizarre boom in Colerain Township has people talking.
Dozens of people are reporting the same things and have said it's happened repeatedly in recent weeks.
"You're always curious when there's a strange sound or strange situation going on," Denney said.
"The serious side to this is PTSD [Post Traumatic Stress Disorder] and scaring animals off just like you would during the 4th of July fireworks," Greg Insco, a Colerain Twp. trustee, said.
They're asking anyone who catches an earful to help them out.
"Report it, and we'll try to triangulate something to figure out where it's exactly coming from," Insco said.
Horstmeyer notes that frost quakes typically sound like a low rumble or a rifle shot depending on how deep and how far away they are.
It's hard to say whether that is what is at play in Colerain Township, but officials are continuing to investigate.
