Anyone just heard a huge bang (but no lightning) Sterrebeek area 10 minutes ago?

Setting up for the evening street market.

I'm serious (for once!) : dog which never reacts cowering, neighbour's cat too and heard as far as Tervuren at least. Nothing in the media.

This reliable web-site http://www.belgorage.com/observation-coups-de-foudre-agrandissement.php shows no thunderous activity in the Brussels region so far tonight so it can't have been thunder. (Note though the activity in the Scheldt estuary.)

thanks for that! It certainly didn't sound like it... the mystery remains

I can hear it every now and then. Seems like it's normal here (though it's not).
