COLUMBIA — Many residents in northern Boone County reported hearing a loud noise between 7:30 and 8 p.m. Monday night. 

The noise can be attributed to Panhandle Eastern Pipeline. The company requested Boone County Fire Protection District be on standby Monday evening while it blew up a high-pressure gas line at a pumping station off Highway 124 between Hallsville and Harrisburg, said Gale Blomenkamp, Fire District division chief. The process caused the loud noise.
