A loud noise was heard across San Diego County Tuesday evening, but it was unclear what caused the boom.

It occurred around 8:15 p.m. and residents, including San Diego Mayor Todd Gloria, took to social media to report hearing the boom.

"Yes, I heard it," Gloria wrote on Twitter. "No, I don't know what it was. I'll share if I get any information."
