We had one clap of thunder over here around 3 am. It was loud and rumbled and banged for over 30 seconds non-stop. If I lived by a refinery, I would have sworn it exploded. I've never experienced anything like it.

15 seconds into this thing, I kept trying to convince myself that it was just thunder and not someting else....

I've never been so freaked out by a noise in the night in my life! When it kept on going I thought this must be what a tornado over a house must sound like. Scary sound indeed!

I'm in MoCity and heard some weird booms last night, too. But it was raining so I chalked it up to thunder.

This afternoon, walked out of the house & could have sworn I was back in NY smelling the Fresh Kills Landfill and oil refineries in Elizabeth, NJ. WTH?

I heard it too in the Alief area. It was more a rumble than a clap. I thought it couldnt be thunder because thunder doesnt go on for that long.
