Rye Police Commissioner William Connors confirms the department received multiple reports from residents in the Greenhaven and Shore Acres area this Wednesday evening around 6:30 p.m. of a possible explosion and ground shaking.
"About an hour ago, we heard a deep explosion and felt it shake the floor," said Greenhaven resident Deborah Bharucha. "My friends in Greenhaven and in Shore Acres also heard [and] felt it. No one knows what it was."
Connors said their officers as well as members of the Mamaroneck Police Department did immediately respond to the area in search of the source. Fearing a possible transformer explosion, ConEd was also dispatched to the area.
As of 7:36 p.m. Wednesday evening, Connors said a complete search of roads in the area has been conducted and declared all clear.
