Mysterious BOOM Shakes Area

Approximately at 8:30 am, a loud noise like an explosion was heard by residents up WV Rt 14 (between Vienna and Williamstown) Reports to 911 started at 8:32 am. Law enforcement investigated and found nothing. Local airport contacted and they stated no airplanes capable of creating a sonic boom are stationed at WV airports. A squadron of F-16 fighters did take off from Daytons AIr Force base at 9:15am so that wasn't it. No explanations could be found. A witness said it felt as though it not only shook the house, but that they could feel it internally as well. They said it wasn't like anything they have ever expereinced.

This happened during the northern lights show.. could they be connected?
