Fars news agency quoted the governor of Asadabad town in Hamedan province as saying that a “terrible sound” was heard around midnight, but its source was not yet clear, adding that “initially, it was believed that the sound was caused by thunderstorms due to weather conditions, but this possibility was ruled out. “.
