Loud 'Boom' Heard at Stow-Kent Border Sunday Night

Facebook users said they heard the loud noise around 9:45 p.m. on Easter — but Stow emergency departments didn't get any calls about it.

Did you hear a loud "boom" in Stow or Kent Sunday evening around 9:45 p.m.? You're not the only one.  

At 10:30 p.m., Capt. Mark Stone said the Stow Fire Department had not received any calls about a loud sound. He added that the dispatch center received no calls about the incident either.  

But — many near the Stow-Kent border still heard it and sirens. 

Facebook followers jumped online and posted on the Stow Patch Facebook page about hearing a boom loud enough to disturb their pets and shake their homes. 

Maria Lauriano Gabanyic first started the conversation about the sound at 10:11 p.m. Sunday. "Anyone else hear a huge boom about 15 minutes ago??"

Shortly after, asked Facebook users the same question. Within minutes, dozens of people gave feedback:

The sound was heard at Wing Warehouse too.

(Editor's note: If you're a fan of the The Walking Dead and haven't watched the season finale, there is a spoiler in the Facebook feed.) 

Kent Patch also asked readers on Facebook if they heard anything Sunday night. See what they had to say here

I missed this one but have heard others within the past month. I always expect a power outage to follow. Not so. Wonder what's up?
