WEBSTER PARISH, La. – Webster Parish Sheriff Gary Sexton says his team will wait until daylight hours before returning to the field to continue investigating and searching for the source of a loud booming-type noise heard across atleast two northwest Louisiana parishes – Webster and Bossier, late Monday.
“We will concentrate on areas between Dixie Inn and the Bossier Parish line north of I-20 to Bellvue Road,” said Sexton.
Sexton said the plan is to dispatch a helipcopter during daylight hours in attempt to locate and identify the origin of the sound. According to some residents, dwellings were shaken during the ordeal. Others have reported a bright flash associated with the noise.
