Posted: Updated:

OCEAN PINES, Md.- WBOC on Friday morning received numerous phone calls and Facebook comments from viewers in Worcester County asking, "What was that loud boom?" The Worcester County Fire Marshal's Office says it was a sonic boom, according to county spokesperson Kim Moses.

At around 9:30 a.m., people from Ocean Pines and Berlin in Worcester County, as well as some people all the way up to Rehoboth Beach, Del., reported that they heard a loud sound similar to an explosion. Some said their homes and businesses shook and windows rattled. Residents in Ocean Pines also reported that the community's fire department's siren went off.

Moses said the agency responsible for the sonic boom has not been determined yet.
