A fire and subsequent explosion, not an earthquake, occurred in the Chautauqua County Town of Ellery.
Bill Krug, a resident of our local community, recently shared his concerns on the Nextdoor app.
“A large explosion just occurred; I noticed it in the east Evans/Derby area. I was in an enclosed patio and it sounded like it originated from the sky, and a fraction of a second later, the pressure wave shook the house.”
According to Krug, the explosion was described as “much louder than a shotgun” and “too loud, sharp, and short in duration to be thunder.”
He expressed his uncertainty about what it could possibly be.
WGRZ Traffic Tracker Dave Cash confirmed that there was an explosion around the same time, although there are still many unanswered questions regarding the loud boom.
WNY Fire Alerts reports that there is an event concerning a “2.5 Story Wood Frame Structure with an Explosion.”
