Mysterious loud explosions heard in Agawam, Massachusetts

A series of what people described as loud explosions were heard in Agawam and Suffield, Connecticut on Saturday and Sunday night.

Residents and police reported that they heard a couple of loud noises on Saturday night. Then on Sunday there were three or four more. It was loud enough to shake some houses and scare resident’s pets.

22News spoke with the Agawam Police Department and the Fire Department who said they were sent out to look into what the cause was but never found anything.

Most reports came from Barre, South Westfield, and Northwest Field Streets. Suffield police also received reports but couldn’t locate the source.

Carl Lovotti of Agawam said, “Yeah, we heard the explosions. I thought this road has a lot of accidents, so we thought there might have been an accident on the street, but we came outside, couldn’t see anything; but there was loud explosions that seemed like they came from Connecticut down in Suffield.”

One Suffield police dispatcher told 22News that her entire house was shaken by the noise and she is still left wondering what it was.

February 13 2015 – Valentine’s weekend blizzard to rage in Northeast; bitter cold, powerful winds, whiteout conditions possible

Valentine’s weekend blizzard to rage in Northeast; bitter cold, powerful winds, whiteout conditions possible

A storm moving through the Northeast during the Valentine’s Day weekend will develop into a blizzard with snow, fierce wind and bitterly cold air.

While the first of two clipper storms this week will stay weak until swinging east of New England, the second clipper storm rolling in this weekend will strengthen significantly.

People on weekend ski trips or partaking in other travel from the Great Lakes to New England will run the risk of getting stuck in the storm and the frigid air moving in.

According to AccuWeather.com Senior Meteorologist Henry Margusity, “The storm could bring life-threatening conditions, especially in New England with very low temperatures and strong winds combining with snow to bring blizzard conditions.”

Initially, light snow will move across the Midwest Friday night into Saturday. However, winds will increase after the snow begins as bitterly cold arctic air arrives and AccuWeather RealFeel® Temperatures plunge below zero F.

The snow and increasing wind will move into the central Appalachians during the day Saturday and will reach the Interstate-95 corridor in the mid-Atlantic and southern New England Saturday afternoon and evening.

As the storm reaches the Atlantic Ocean Saturday night, it will strengthen.

The storm has the potential to bring a moderate to heavy snowfall from the upper part of the mid-Atlantic to southern and central New England Saturday night into Sunday.
