WEST ODESSA - Some West Odessans had a big scare on Thursday morning.

It sounded like an explosion went off.

Turns out, it wasn't even close.

Centurion Pipeline says they were just performing a routine test.

They tell us they were rushing water into pipelines to test them.

The water was sent at high pressure which triggered a break in an older pipe.

No one was hurt.

Officials say this kind of testing is common.
