KA-BOOM!

That's what the people of Gladewater heard as a loud boom rocked the area leaving the community puzzled and authorities looking for answers.

According to KLTV, the boom was heard all the way in Longview per a report from Nixle.

Many East Texans who also heard to the loud boom went to social media and expressed concern while others say they heard a similar boom in neighboring counties and even in Tyler Friday night.

No injuries were reported as of yet, but my theory could be some kids pulling a childish prank with M-80 fireworks or homemade firecrackers.

Have you heard the loud boom?  Let us know in the comments.
