Residents across southern Montgomery County and northern Warren County Sunday night heard three large booms.
The noises happened around 7 p.m., and prompted several calls to area 911 dispatchers and our newsroom.
One Miamisburg man said the loud booms sounded like an explosion, and that the last one sounded louder than the first.

Yes, that was my first thought.
I heard two instances that sounded like thunder to me. Yes, it’s 34 degrees and snowing, and I never saw any lighting. But thunder snow happens.
My husband thought it was our neighbors moving things around in their condo.
Mongomery county=Dayton=Wright Patterson AFB. The head of Air Force research and development. Possibly sonic booms?
Probably those Russian fighter pilots having a little fun.
For at least the past couple of years, they’ve been around the world.......with no explanation.
been HEARD around the world.
It’s just the Military-Industrial Complex testing weapons on civilians. Nothing to worry about.
River ice breaking up due to AGW.
Probably special forces training. There is a private security firm operating here in eastern Arkansas doing training all year long. The locals hear loud booms off in the distance every few days. Eventually you get used to it.
Yes, Thunder Snow happens alright.
Yes, it does, very rarely..
Sonic booms, you may be onto something here.
When I was a farm kid in the 50s, my dad bought a couple of Zon gun to scare crows off our corn fields. Mostly what it did was move the crows from our farm, to the neighbours farm until they bought some Zon guns too! I see that this product still exists albeit they use propane now. http://www.daken.com.au/scare_guns.html Ive often wondered what happened to our old Zon guns since the fam has long changed hands... .they sound like a cannon on steroids when they go off. If a person was ever to bring one of those on to a city street and light it up, it would knock everybodys windows out for a block in every direction.
The boos should read the BOOMS,
Damn brain still out runs the fingers.
Any military bases nearby? Probably supersonic jets flying together. Sonic booms can be mistaken easily for an explosion especially over such a wide area. You would think that a two county wide boom would have a cause....such as a fertilizer plant or something. Therefore, I think sonic booms are likely the most logical conclusion.
Wright Patterson AFB is right in the area.
