Was it a meth lab? A transformer blowing? A train crash? A meteor? So many people are asking, and I really have no idea what the loud noise was last night around 10 p.m. I’ve asked the Benton Police Department and they don’t have record of anything like that happening. I’ve also asked the Saline County Sheriff’s Office and I’m waiting for a reply. Meanwhile, I know a lot of things, but this isn’t one of them. Sorry folks. I’ll update if I hear otherwise. See below for just some of the comments I’ve received.
Any word on a loud boom heard last night at 9:45 heard from Bauxite to the UALR campus?
Hey. Have you by any chance learned what the big boom in Benton was last night? We heard it at our house and I have heard people talking about hearing it as far as military, Edison, even Haskell. Some people said it shook their house (not so much here but I heard it)
Do you have any information on the big boom heard in Benton last night?
Hey Shelli! I was wondering if you heard anything about an explosion last night around 9:50. It was so loud that it rattled my windows. I live over between hwy 35 and the hill.
