Columbia, SC (WLTX) - News19 has gotten multiple reports of loud booms in several Midlands neighborhoods.

The reports began coming in around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday.

We heard from worried residents in Sumter, Wedgefield, Manning, and Bishopville. The noise was so loud that windows rattled and homes shook.

Reports also came out of Summerton, Eastover, Mayesville, Lexington, Lugoff, Camden and Sandy Run.

We made several calls to try and find out what caused the sounds, and the State Emergecny Management Agency says it wasn't an earthquake.

Shaw Air Force Base hasn't reported any unusual flying activity and Lynn Douglas with the Columbia Airport says she knows of no sonic booms in the Midlands on Wednesday.
