PELHAM, N.H. -- There is a mystery in the air in Pelham. A startling sound has been waking some residents from a sound sleep, and other times it's heard in the afternoon.
Police reports have come in from neighborhoods around Mammoth and Nashua roads.
Callers said it sounds like an enormous bang, a sonic boom, or a transformer explosion -- and no one seems to know what's making the noise.
The Department of Transportation said it is not their blasting. The National Guard reports no training missions, and area businesses said they aren't making the mystery sound.
Police said they'll continue to investigate calls from concerned residents.
