Neighbors keep hearing mysterious ‘boom’ near Carytown

RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) – Some people living on Grayland Avenue near Carytown told CBS 6 they have heard a mysterious boom sound for the past few months.

“It’s like a boom that has an echo to it,” said Thomas Daniel who lives near Grayland Avenue and S. Sheppard Street.

Daniel told CBS 6 news reporter Chelsea Rarrick that he hears the mystery sound periodically, sometimes even a few times a week. He said he first heard it while sitting on his front porch around 2 a.m.

“You think sometimes it’s like a train backing into another train,” said Daniel

Sarah Barrow also lives on Grayland Ave. and heard a boom for the first time this week around 10 or 11 p.m.

“The front right window shook, which made me realize it’s more than just a backfire from a truck on a highway,” she said.

CBS 6 contacted the Richmond Police Department regarding the noise. RPD said they have received a couple of reports regarding the sounds in the area, but can’t confirm what it is since an officer didn’t hear the sound.

“Where is this coming from?” said Daniel.
