Did a loud boom wake you up overnight? At least three people in Peru heard a loud boom or explosion around 3:30am Saturday. Police officers went out trying to pinpoint what it was but didn’t find anything.

There were no reports of fires or power outages. Officers say in the past, similar noises were caused by empty barges hitting or semis backing up to their trailers.

A woman on Seventh Street thought it sounded like a half stick of dynamite.
