At least 3 neighbors here on 4th Street heard a big whoomp-like bang this morning at approx 7:15.
Anyone else hear it, and/or know where it originated?

Denny has the scoop, see his comment! Here is a picture of the Whoomp!

My dogs heard it and they woke me up barking so all I heard was barking at 7:15 this morning.

Maybe it was a big sheet of ice sliding off of a roof. Our greenhouse did that yesterday afternoon and it sounded like a plane was crashing into the back of the house.

Cause found! The crash was caused when a large section of retaining wall along the Norfolk and Southern RR siding collapsed. I contacted the railroad, the city inspections dept, the police, AT&T and tried the homeowner on Terry St. who may own the wall. Between them all it's hard to say if anything will get done. Another section is ready to go, but it's leaning on a AT&T phone pole. Quite a bit of erosion is likely if something isn't done soon.
