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

Posted:
MCGREGOR -

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.
