Authorities on New York’s Long Island are hunting the person responsible for a blast on a small island that left a s crater in the sand and shook houses miles away, sparking potential terror concerns.

Speaking at a press conference in Yaphank Monday, Suffolk County police acting Commissioner Stuart Cameron told reporters, “Obviously our department is concerned as to why someone would detonate a device of this size and magnitude on an uninhabited island.”

“So we definitely want to find out who did it,” he continued, according to Newsday. “If you are the person responsible for this detonation, I encourage you to come forward and identify yourself to our department so we can find the root cause of this incident and allay any concerns for the public.”

Suffolk County police received 30 911 calls about the explosion that happened around 11 a.m. Sunday on the uninhabited Fox Island, located off the town of Babylon, Cameron said, adding that Nassau County police also received 911 calls about the blast felt and heard from homes and businesses.
