A loud explosion, a rumbling, and a flash of light, is what residents in Warwick and Barrington repeatedly described to officers as calls flooded the police station last night.

Denise Burrows described what happened," We heard a huge boom, just assumed it was an explosion in the local area, and then realized it was a little further away after hearing some of the reports and came out to see what it was."

"It sounded like a really loud motorcycle," said Lauren Burrows.

Crews searched the area through the night. The Coast Guard scanning the waters. Police say it appears the noise came from the Bay near Conimicut Point. The search has since been called off for now.
