Langley RCMP tell NEWS 1130 ground and air searches as well as interviews in the neighbourhood have yet to pinpoint a cause.
At this time there have been no reports of anyone hurt although some parents say their kids were frightened out of bed and had to be calmed down.
Some people are comparing the noise and vibration to being near a large fireworks show.
