Loud Bang in Palo Verde at 11.15 pm on Thursday

Original post made by Curious, Palo Verde, on Jul 22, 2011

Very loud bang, could have been transformer or gunshot, just as I was dropping off to sleep. Power was not interrupted. Not a car backfiring. Did anyone else hear it or know what it was?

I heard that PAPD thought it was fireworks and weren't able to locate anything specific.

Husband (and dog) heard it - assumed it was an M80 firecracker. Drives the dog nuts.

Yes, I heard it, had no idea where it came from or what it was and I am in Crescent Park. It was loud.
