The loud explosion noise was reported at around 9pm throughout Accomack, Virginia but weirdly, also in Wicomico and Worcester counties in Maryland.

Here the post about this mysterious explosion on the Eastern Shore Fire/EMS/Police Breaking News Facebook page:

Eastern Shore Fire/EMS/Police Breaking News Original report was Mason Oil Co on Chincoteague Island but nothing has been found anywhere on Chincoteague. Wallops Island reports nothing they did and they are all clear as well. Hearing reports it was heard well inland in Maryland as well.

According To the origin of the loud booming noise is still a mystery. As they write:

The origin of what felt like a loud explosion heard throughout northern Accomack, Wicomico and Worcester counties Tuesday night remained a mystery this morning. […]

[…] A unit from the island’s fire company responded to a call received at 8:44 p.m. about an explosion with fire at the Mason Oil Company. After questioning the individual who made the report, responders determined the supposed fire was mistaken for the “glow of lights” outside the local business. Did the witnesses associated the loud boom with the lights?

No earthquakes have been recorded in Virginia or Maryland yesterday. But when I hear people talking about glowing lights, fire… I first think ‘meteor’, than when such a large area is rattled and hear the same noise, than again I think ‘meteor explosion’. And what about you? Did you hear it? Did you feel it?  A giant meteor was seen disintegrating over Brazil on September 22, 2015.
