Update: SpaceX confirms "loud sound" at McGregor test facility


We're working to gather more information after people in the McGregor area say they felt and heard an explosion.

Sources tell us that two nitrogen tanks at SpaceX over-pressurized and ruptured, causing a loud boom that shook some nearby homes.

Fire, police and emergency workers responded. No one was hurt and there isn't a hazmat or environmental threat.

We sent a crew to the scene, but SpaceX security guards asked them to leave.

SpaceX is releasing very little information, but they did confirm that a loud sound was heard coming from the McGregor test facility.
