Canterbury residents have taken to social media to express their confusion and fascination over a large bang heard shortly before 9am.

Locals commented on posts about the noise, claiming their windows rattled, houses shook and that it was felt in various suburbs.

“Scared the shizers out of me,” one resident said, while another mentioned they heard the boom in Woodend before hearing a “wobbling sound”.

Another resident said the noise nearly caused her to drop her coffee, describing the sound as “very, very loud.”

 “Meteor I’m thinking,” one person speculated, while another said they thought parts of their house broke off given the sound.

“I heard it too went running out thinking a car had crashed,” one commenter mentioned after hearing the sound.

Police said they had received multiple reports of the bang, which they attributed to possibly having come from Woodend.

“Inquiries are ongoing to determine the circumstances surrounding the noise,” a spokesperson said.

Fire and Emergency are not responding at this stage to the reports.
