Beginning of November, 1954, Ambazac, Haute-Vienne:

Reference number for this case: 1-Oct-54-Ambazac. Thank you for including this reference number in any correspondence with me regarding this case.

Summary:

In his 1999 book "Le Problème de la Vie Extraterrestre", ufologist Michel Jeantheau speaks of cases of "mysterious explosions", and gives partial quotes that he says he found in the newspaper Le Limousin for November 6, 1954.

Apparently, in Ambazac, "some believed that it was the dynamite deposit located around Saint-Sylvestre which had just exploded" but that in the said area "a minority has heard nothing, or seen absolutely nothing."

He finds this surprising, and asks what to think of the following sentence, "Strange detail: the director of the Shell gas station at La Croisière, at H hour (around 10 p.m.) perceived an underground rumble strong enough that he had the impression that the earth was going away under his feet; he immediately went to the house opposite the station; no one had heard anything!"
