With a name reminiscent of a cereal brand, "frost quakes" have splashed across media headlines in response to hundreds of reports of shaking and loud booms experienced around the Great Lakes since Christmas Eve.

Technically referred to as cryoseisms, frost quakes are an extremely rare phenomenon that up until December 24, 2013 was relegated to only a handful of reported incidents.

In fact, a frost quake is so rare that 30-year weather veteran and Environment Canada meteorologist Geoff Coulson hadn’t dealt with the phenomenon until local reports of unexplained booms and shaking started pouring in on Christmas Day.

“They are incredibly rare,” Coulson said in an interview on December 30. Source

A cryoseism is defined as:

"Major frost cracking of the top few feet of the ground, occurring during sub-zero cold snaps, which generates localized ground shaking and is often mistaken for an earthquake." Source

 

After first being reported around Toronto, Ontario on Christmas Eve 2013, ground shaking and loud booms as far away as Vermont and Illinois were also soon attributed to this formerly unheard of phenomena.

 

1.  The first piece of evidence against the "frost quake" explanation rests with the historical reporting of cryoseisms.  Over the past 10 days, dozens of articles have appeared on internet news media with numerous reports of frost quakes from Illinois to Vermont, yet prior to this, one is hard pressed to find more than a handful of incidents, with most occurring after 2003.

2.  The next compelling argument against the frost quake explanation is the incidence of shaking and loud booms reported in regions that did not experience extreme cold during the same timeframe:

 December 28 - Moniteau County, Missouri

December 29 - Corpus Christi, Texas

December 29 - Eureka, California

December 30 - Cranston, Rhode Island

 

3.  Lastly, the locations of all the reported booms and shaking during this brief time portrays the tear points along North America's rock strata undergoing an excruciating diagonal stress from the Christmas Hammer's formidable annual assertion.  

4.  What remains is the disemboweled carcass of yet another desperate Main Establishment Lie intended to misinform and redirect the public from any awareness of the nearby presence of Planet X, aka Nibiru.

"The cover-up crowd is reaching for any excuses they can throw out to explain the Earth changes caused by Planet X. The Earth wobble has gotten more obvious, the Sun out of place and the weather wobbles following. The earthquake increase has been denied by reducing the magnitude of quakes and purging the quake databases, but even with these maneuvers the increase is statistically obvious. Fracking has been blamed for earthquakes, and now the Winter temps are to blame for the booming of breaking rock around Toronto, along the spreading seaway. Will these excuses fall away after the announcement? Expect them to increase, as the cover-up crowd will become like a cornered animal, more vicious and extreme."

 "The Christmas Hammer is caused in great part by the December switch in Magnetic Trimester which occurs, as we have explained, at approximately December 17 on the Earth calendar. This forces a magnetic adjustment in all magnetic planets, and great stress on the Earth which is locked into a magnetic dance with Planet X."

ZetaTalk Chat Q&A: November 26, 2011

"The magnetic trimesters are echoing what we have frequently referred to as particle crowding, occurring elsewhere in the Universe in such a way as to influence the flow of magnetic particles in the vicinity of your solar system. Your Sun is dominant in his little neighborhood. The planets align with the Sun but in their own little backyards are likewise dominant. But the solar system is swayed by a larger magnetic field which encompasses the solar system. In fact, your human scientists have discovered this, finding the solar system delineated by what they termed a magnetic ribbon.

Why should this divide into three phases, when magnets on the surface of Earth have no such phases? This is a pulse, from afar, and not relevant to mankind's future on planet Earth. Suffice it to say that this pulse is divided into 3 parts, and they line up remarkably well with a 4 month period, each being a third of an Earth year. Did the Earth arrive at her orbit of 365 days in a year in part because of this magnetic pulse? Indeed, and this also relates to why the Earth and the Sun both tilt in a certain direction, magnetically. Were we to estimate more precisely the point when the pulse changes, it would be more akin to December 17, April 20, and August 12. But there is a slight period after the end of a phase when a particle crowding has not yet subsided, or an increase in particle flow has not yet registered. Thus, the end of those months is most accurate as a guide."

Temperatures have barely fallen below freezing in New England and already the loud booms are being blamed on cryoseisms. 

Loud Boom in Maine Attributed to a Frost Quake (Oct 12) 

For some residents who were awake, the loud boom around 1:30 a.m. Sunday was unmistakable. For others, who were asleep, the sound jarred them awake.

Following the single loud noise, nothing came across the police scanners indicating that first responders or police were investigating or responding to an emergency. A call to Knox County Regional Communications Center Sunday morning revealed that nobody had called in to report an issue, or hearing a loud boom sound.

But a post on Facebook brought out reports from others who heard it.

It’s not clear where the boom originated, but there have been reports on Facebook of it being heard on lower Chestnut Street, Sea Street, Trim Street and Free Street. 

One possible explanation this morning comes from fellow editor Lynda Clancy, who shared a link to the state Geological Survey page on cryoseisms, or frost quakes, in Maine. Frost quakes are caused by the sudden freezing and expanding of moisture in the ground.

According to the state agency, a cryoseism (don’t ask me to pronounce it) is a “natural phenomenon that produces ground shaking and noises similar to an earthquake, but is caused by sudden deep freezing of the ground. They typically occur in the first cold snap of the year when temperatures drop from above freezing to below zero, particularly if there is no snow cover to insulate the ground. ”

The National Weather Service Saturday evening issued frost warnings and watches, the later for coastal areas, so it’s quite possible that a cryoseism is what many of us heard early Sunday morning.

A frost quake is very localized, compared to an earthquake that can be felt by people far away from the epicenter, and according to the Geological Survey page, in some cases people in houses a few hundred yards away do not feel anything

“The reason that the vibrations do not travel very far is that cryoseisms don't release much energy compared with a true earthquake caused by dislocation of rock within the earth. On the other hand, since cryoseisms occur at the ground surface they can cause significant effects right at the site, enough to jar people awake,” said that agency.

No surprise, cryoseisms typically occur between midnight and dawn, during the coldest part of the night. If conditions are right, they may occur in a series of booms and shakes over a few hours or even on successive nights.

But that’s apparently not what happened this time, as those who were either awake or wakened by the sound reported hearing only that single one. And the site of this morning’s cryoseism has not been located, since all of those commenting on Facebook only reported hearing it, not feeling it.

The lowest temperature was 41 degrees Fahrenheit at 3:40 a.m., according to Weather Underground and the 7 Cedars weather station.

Mysterious Booms Wake Ontario Residents (Jul 24)

Well, it couldn’t have been a frost quake.

Beyond that, the source of two loud “booms” that jarred several Peel Village residents out of bed in the middle of the night last week remains unexplained.

It was approximately midnight, or just after, on Thursday night (July 24) when the mysterious noises were heard, one after another.

The sounds startled some out of bed, and caused a few to take a midnight wander outside to ensure all was well.

Once the sun was up, the word went out on social media as residents took to the Internet and news sources to try to find out what had happened.

They found nothing.

 “I jumped out of bed, my dog started barking,” Diana Tenuta Heron wrote on the Peel Village Facebook page. “It was two loud booms! My son was startled because we thought it was something blowing up!”

Another resident heard it and went outside, but “found nothing amiss”.

The last time loud “booms” were reported in Brampton, it was winter, and the nighttime noises were attributed to frost quakes.

Glenna Perry said she was outside with her dog and didn’t see anything.

“Not usually one to be startled, I jumped when I heard them,” she wrote. “They were loud and low-sounding, almost like a large truck hitting a big bump… They definitely weren’t thunder.”

A spokesperson for the Greater Toronto Airports Authority said the sounds didn’t come from the airport. Nothing unusual was happening at Pearson International Airport that night, she said.

Peel Regional Police Const. George Tudos said nothing was reported to police that night that could explain the sounds, either.

And City of Brampton spokesperson Megan Ball said the noises had nothing to do with city services or programs.

And it wasn’t until two nights later that some Toronto residents reported seeing unexplained lights in the sky over that city.

Now that the Christmas Hammer has passed, the loud booms near Toronto have subsided, yet the region is experiencing cold temperatures equivalent to when the booms were occurring.

While the media predictably attributes this crack to be the result of a frost quake, this region experienced equivalent cold in 2006. It is also in the same proximity where booming was reported in 2012 and land cracks appeared in 2010.

More booms and rare quakes over the past 24 hours in alignment with today's rare 5.1 quake off Cuba.

New Bedford, Massachusetts - Jan 9

Conestoga, Pennsylvania - Jan 8

Thanks for dissecting Howard. It was pretty obvious this was a cover up ploy the moment they referred to a 'frost quake'
