Police determined that work at a Lexington construction site was responsible for a tremor that caused several homeowners on Bryan Station Road near New Circle to call 911 and report an explosion.
The tremor was so strong it shook houses and was possibly detected by seismic stations in Lexington, Kentucky Geological Survey spokesman Mike Lynch said.
A seismic spike was recorded around 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, about the same time callers reported feeling a the tremor, Lynch said.
Police and firefighters searched the area for the source of the tremor for about hour and ultimately tracked it to a construction site in the area of New Circle and Bryan Station roads.
